The BigInteger module provides
** (exponentiation) of a bigint base to a bigint exponent. It seems like if that's supported, it should be pretty straight-forward to support an int or uint base to a bigint exponent.
In other bigint methods where there wasn't originally an int/uint equivalent, we wrap the int/uint in a bigint and then call the normal bigint method. That should be tractable for this case as well, so far as I know.
