Could you not just use one In[25][PARA*COEF] and always use that? I.e.
for 1-limb runs you just use In[0]. Maybe that would not help much
though. And on another thought I guess that would mean we blow the first
part of the long constant. On the other hand we only need to repair it
once per crypt_all(). Oh well, I guess I should look at the code, or at
least the format, before coming up with confusing ideas :-P
