Before we start reimplementing functionality:

1) There was talk of moving the compile-time-integer functionality out
of Math and into Integer.
2) At some point I will probably try and re-factor Math into smaller
chunks, but...

* Not until after the release, and,
* I want to see where this is going: at present any potential usefulness
to all this modularization is frankly vaporware. I realize there is a
chicken-and-egg situation here, but until we have some user-focused
tools for handling dependencies it's not clear to me at least what the
best/optimal form of refactoring actually is. And I only want to do it
once ;-)

My suggestion would be to park issues and possible solutions on the Wiki
until we get the release out?
