Does anyone feel like doing a speed comparison between Daniel's C patch and a version with a direct no-frills iterative version of factorial_part_product (i.e., just a simple  'for (i = n; i <= m; i += 2) { <multiply running product by i> }?  I have a sneaking suspicion that the iterative version will be faster even for quite large values of n, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
