I implemented it, you can find it attached.

The funny thing is that with the attached code, all the chain gcd_55 ->
lowz -> gcd_44 -> lowz -> gcd_33 -> lowz is handled with tail calls.
On the other side, a great part of the code is duplicated, but it can not
exploit the fixed-size shortcuts... I'm not that sure the resulting code
is useful.
