Interesting point.  It does appear that the sqrt is merely an
optimization.  We could probably use numtargs/2 and achieve much the
same overall speedup, as 'N' in these loops is probably in the
100-1000 range, this won't be a bottleneck.

Might be worth a test though.  Still, I have no real opinion on
whether the removal of libm as a dep is worth it or not.
