Heh and sorry for my late entry... I've been part of a previous
discussion on this subject, but didn't feel I had anything new to add
until now.

This sounds good, but I would suggest to consider also adding a
convenience method in the same CD for the case where R_1=R_2=...=R_n=R .

Then this could be something like
@(M,R,a_0,a_1,\ldots,a_n) = @(and,@(R,a_0,a_1),@(M,R,a_1,\ldots,a_n))

Would this be a good idea ?
