I glanced at the patch, most of the tables seem trivially derivable at
runtime. I can help with more concrete ideas if you place a comment
above the tables with a link to where you got them: ideally a
mathematical/algorithmic derivation, but in the absence of that, a
link to where you got them from. On the plus side, this is nowhere
near as bad as dcadec tables, but we don't want to repeat such things
unless there is no alternative.

Apart from that, again from a quick glance, there are a ton of
mallocs/frees. Can these somehow get consolidated?
