Summary description:  Expandable operations on long numbers

Announcement text:
 - Logarithms (natural and to the base 10), exponentials and
   powers now available up to 62 digits.

 - Trigonometric functions also available at high degree of
   accuracy up to 62 digits.

 - Special fast mode at 8 digits or less for the above mentioned
   functions, at a lowered accuracy standard (correct rounding
   perhaps only in about 95% of cases), but largely precise enough
   for tasks such as plots.

 Also taking this opportunity to announce xintsession which
 has been available for a few weeks.
  Try out "etex xintsession" or, if available,
 "rlwrap etex xintsession" on the command line.
