I hope everyone had a good July 4 weekend.
I updated the patch for 8014319 (i.e. phase 3 of the BigInteger work).
The patch still consists of three files; they can be found at

There are only two changes vs last week's version. A missing @author tag
has been added, and common powers of two are now cancelled before
dividing numbers.
I realize the review of the phase 3 patch is about to begin, so I won't
make any more changes to the code.
