this interface would be nice for me. I don't think a bignum base is necessary,
unless you use REDC in powm, in which case (for n having at least 2 limbs) it
might be faster to use a base b such that b*R mod n is small, where R is the REDC

a quick test shows that n=21 already requires 3 bases, like 764941, 1004653...
