Making some C error handling mechanism would be great, though.  I am not

  Also, I seem to remember there were plans to make a new version of
  mpz_nextprime accepting a random state and the number of M-R tests, and
  of mpz_probab_prime_p accepting a random state. Of course, these could
  just be new functions.
I think new functions would be best, with old ones kept for
