Keep in mind his approach is not standard nor endorsed by any standard
committee [nor is he pushing it afaik].

That and his code has only been tested on FPU friendly platforms.

But who's counting.

Normal ECC over say P-256 isn't really slow and should be fast enough
as well. Though for verification RSA would win over P-256 verification
[on most platforms]
