Replacing lehmer_gcd.py with a revised version.  Even in Python, this 
version is faster than the current one, on my machine, once both numbers 
are greater than 10**650 or so (your crossover points may vary).  It's 
over four times faster for very large inputs (over 10**20000).

Okay.  I'll stop now :)
