But isn't lowest_bit() != 0 an overkill for checking that a number is
even? (I mean, first computing the order of the lowest_bit, then
comparing to 0...) I think there is room for lowest_bit /
highest_bit as well as for is_odd and is_even. Perhaps it will be
more readable than the idiom "integer(x) %2 == 0".
