another reason to start out with horizontal-first is that powmod is currently
sitting effectively untestable until we have *any* fast enough divmod
algorithm. I am quite confident I can write a horizontal-first divmod algorithm
in a relatively short amount of time, I am not very confident I can write a
vertical-first divmod at all and would probably need to go by way of writing a
horizontal-first algorithm and then transforming it into a vertical-first
algorithm anyway.
