Hm. I could have sworn someone on this list said they used the Perl module
for their PHP implementation. Sorry.
You could have a look at GMP and big_int which are the other two I ended up
supporting, they're both significantly faster than BCMath and you also have
the option of leaving the number in its native format instead of having to
go through the conversion of string->big int->string on every function call.
