Why don't add for mpz/mpq/mpfr the varargs list version of 
init/init2/clear ?

   	mpx_t x, y, z, a, b, c;
   	mpx_init_s (x, y, z, NULL);
   	mpx_init2_s(50, a, b, c, NULL);
   	mpx_clear_s (x, y, z, a, b, c, NULL);

It is quite annoying when you have to init/clear multiple variables.

   A varargs list of mpfr_t's to init or clear,

   	mpfr_t x, y, z;
   	mpfr_inits (x, y, z, NULL);
   	mpfr_clears (x, y, z, NULL);

Please consider taking these out for now, for interface

In the future, I think it would be a good idea to bring
this sort of general interface additions/modifications
up with gmp-devel at swox.com.
