  Very interesting! Moreover you got the current code!
  I can see that the test suite does not exercise really big factorials...
  Maybe checking Wilson's theorem on a single large enough prime might be a
  not too slow way to.
I think we have some work to do, only Marc can be proud of his coverage,
which is 100% both for lines and files.  :-)

We need not worry about limited coverage in the tests themselves, they
contain many lines with error printing which we don't want to be

To me, the most worrying part is that 20 mpn functions are not covered.
