  Ok. Thanks for addressing the flint problem. I did not add RFE:
to the symmetrica bug report, but can do that. I think it would be
also reasonably to rename more functions, because they use names
too much generic, e.g. add, sub, mult, div, sum, sort, etc.

  Thanks! I will wait a bit more, as for now I can build from sources
whatever I need, but should shortly attempt to switch to rawhide,
as I am used to run bleeding edge :-)
