That would be a good guess, but actually the issue with these NIST tests 
is that they use numeric values exceeding the bounds that engines are 
required to support.  That's why you see ERROR listed as one of two 
legal results.  I don't recall finding an engine until now that both 
supported the arbitrarily sized numeric values and had a good 
understanding of the surrounding calls used by the NIST tests. 
Awkwardly the NIST tests themselves are just the queries, no results, so 
I had to write some of them in by hand.  Your engine is better at 
calculating results than my hands.  :-)

I'm hoping Carmelo updates the NIST tests to have numeric values within 
the mandatory-to-support range.  That'll make the NIST set of tests more

OK, great!
