A small but valuable improvement in the fibonacci algorithm blatantly stolen from a python version by gkreidel on the Pi forums seems to be ~25% faster for 4784969 fibonacci

d := ((b bitShift: 1) - a) * a.
e := a squared + b squared.

ifTrue:[a squared + b squared]
ifFalse: [((b bitShift: 1) - a) * a]! !
About 75% of time goes on the #squared and 8% on WeakArray finalization.
