Just a quick note. A little while ago, I believe there was a squirmish about
not getting too nit-picky about optimizing the code... but... I would like
to point out that the short hand way of stepping was about 1.5 times slower
when I tested it for all arithmetic operations. :-)

Just pointing it out.
