Well, that should be straightforward to do from a manual read, at least
if huge_int is not terribly hard to compute.

But of course such an expression grows pretty quickly with n.  It will
have around 3^n*1000 bits, and most of us cannot afford the RAM or disk
for very large n.  I can afford up to n=18.  :-)
