Re: ispseudoprimepower()

I don't love the explosion of similar functions, but I would certainly use ispseudoprimepower() if it were implemented. (I would cry softly about no longer being able to type isps - TAB to get ispseudoprime(), though.)

Sage currently has such a function but implemented not as efficiently as

I could easily implement this in PARI if you want...
In attachment a patch implementing the libpari function ispseudoprimepower(). If you think this patch is a good idea, I can add the corresponding GP function and documentation.
