and the functions I would like to add but I am unsure whether to add a
new GP function or to overload another:

rnfequation for finite field extensions.
multiplicative order of an finite field element
discrete logarithm in a finite field
primitive element of a finite field
(actually, this one can be performed using sqrtn(a^0,p^n-1,&z);z)

Others ideas ?  Suggestions ?
