Re: becoming embebbed

I must write to agree with the former sender, memory is also for me much 
more important that speed. Swapping eats up every possible speed increase.

How about adding a run-time option for memory or speed, in the case of the 
algorithm below this should not give too much overhead.
(BTW, the option, as well as its consequences can be made possible to define 
out at compile time, if wanted.)
