Thanks!, updated [1].

By that scoring, Mike's Goldilocks implementation retains the
"relative efficiency" crown.  But the E-521 numbers are without ASM
optimization.  And their 9 limbs / 58-bit radix seems impressive
(Goldlilocks uses 8 limbs / 56-bit radix).

So this seems pretty close, I wonder what a better-optimized 521 could do...
