Happy Birthday Alain!
I had a look at the polynom.sty manual. It is only 6 pages and well
written. You should give it a try.
If \Expand{a}{b}{some degree} should represent polynomial division, then
\polylongdiv[stage=3] {(X-1)(X-1)(X^2+1)^4} {(X-1)(X+1)(X+1)}
might be what you want. Anyway look in manual.
