[Vm-dev] pluginizing Galois Fields

I thought I would post to these lists. I have a nascent implementation 
of Reed-Solomon encoding using Galois Fields. Computation within the 
field is governed by polynomial representation and operations (add, 
subtract, multiply, divide, inverse, exp, log). These operations on 
polynomials is where the profile says most time is being used.  The code 
can be seen in the SecureSession package in squeaksource's Cryptography 

The point of this email is to see if the folks who would know how to 
represent polynomials and operations in Slang would be interested in 
working towards this performance effort, whether through discussion of 
implementation. How would you Slanginize a polynomial and it's operations?
