for now I precalculate and store the log_factorials in a table.
That gave 5-fold speed-increase. (I didn't expect this !)

gsl seems to just sum the values - as I did

HypergeometricPFQ - how to calculate it ? I couldn't find it quickly.
(How fast ?) Maybe I'll look at it later

I could also precalculate tables[500][500] for k<500,w<500 for each
but that requires rearrangement of the data
