That is a very good news! Also I see on your website you plan to add
more mpn_ routine, that also will be very useful to us.
Accomodating the needs of other packages (e.g., PARI, OpsnSSL) is
one major reason for the mpn extensions.
Anyway, GMP 5 should make this patch useless.
That's why I reject it.
