For example, with 16 SETPREC, the functions would use common (and fast) algorithms, and with any other precision setting they would use the variable precision library. I think that 99% of calculations don't need variable precision, and this solution would make newRPL more comparable to the Prime, as far as speed is concerned.

Anyway, as Fran├žois noted, the speed improvement is already very satisfying.

Yes, it's a good possibility that in the end, the default precision of 32 digits could use optimized code, then other precisions fall back to the general routine.
