The Shootout benchmarks should preferably be implemented without unit 
classes to achieve the best memory usage results. Your code is welcome 
though to add to unit classes, allthough I currently can't because it uses 
assembler code withotu Pascal alternative, i.e. it would make the classes 
unit unavailable on the other processors FPC supports.

Can you do the same to improve readln?
