nice catch. {1 0 0 0} I fix it, fixed.

Additional question: should the list be of the exact size as the input if no carry happens? This is important because the lazy approach would simply always return a list whose size is one larger than that of the input.

EDIT: More comments:

#12 and #2 do not seem all that different

#14 could easily run into overflow problems if your list is a minimum of 100 elements; did you mean to return the number as a list of digits in base 10?
