The problem for the C functions is outlined in tasks.html.  I'd like
to add longlong conversions for gcc, and worry later about other
possible compilers with or without that type.

For C++ is longlong is always available?  If there's no risk of a
missing type then I guess we could do something about conversions for
mpz_class etc, even if initially they come out as slightly bloated
