that would be _very_ inefficient and can easily
flood file systems.

in general, it is difficult to modify input parameters, once
a calculation is started. you would have to re-initialize most
of the internal data structures. not very efficient.
before speculating any further, it might be helpful to learn
what the application would that that requires such an unusual
