Speaking of micro-optimizations, did you consider a better than naive
algorithm for "Count the number of set bits in n" in your patch?
HAKMEM 169 comes to mind and being a divide and conquer too, it seems
like a good fit.   Certainly an overkill if used just for
math.factorial(), but this is probably a useful function to have
around.
