We might want to re-phrase it somewhat, perhaps just "consider" ->
"seriously consider", or even "New projects should use mpfr since mpf is
slower, less complete, and not actively developed".

  MPFR and that item should disappear, but I am only speaking for myself

I don't want to work on integrating any new mpf developments.  But if
one of the other committers want to do that, I won't try to "veto" it.
