How long does your sqrt operation take?  How long does a branch take?
Sqrt will probably be done in the time it takes to go to main memory on a
recent CPU so they really don't cost anything significant.  Something like
quake will be doing 1000s of sqrts a frame.

p.s. no-one has tracked down my link problem with eog.   I'm awaiting
commands.  :-)
