maybe copy divcore and divcore tests to a new directory and work on it there?

that way we can keep the working code separate in case we fail the first time.

if making a PartitionedValue class doesn't work, we could fall back on the
method used in the partitioned multiplier -- write the code explicitly and just
accept that it will be complex.
