## Super-duper High Priority

#8254 #11040 #11043 faster startup time; see also the Sage forker, and see this article

#11705 Port Sage to Power 7 (ppc64) -- there is a machine "silius" on skynet that should be used for this. Only problem is building Maxima...

#10975 creation of certain prime finite fields is double dog slow

## Medium Priority
