Well what i asked if anyone could help me reencode standard base to
NyaN base, most i would like a generic form working for all bases like
the one i posted for standard bases.
It may be that NyaN do not fit current paradigm, but they could be
useful for someone (me).
And i simply forgot howto do it, it was a few lines of codes probably
less code then for standard bases.
