Maybe you should first try the suggestion by Paulo Almeida above? That is,
use an array (as provided by the 'array' module) to store big integers in.
For instance, each entry in the array could could store an integer that can
hold 256 bits. That would most definitely be an improvement over using
binaries and might work good enough to work in your application.
