Re: Faster exponentiation in some extensions of finite fields of small characteristics

Yes, the reason is the existing convention for fromdigits.  I did not
want to write another copy of fromdigits with the only difference being
the order of the digits.  I did not try to to find out whether this
would give a noticeable speed improvement.

Best wishes,
