Should we also drop the "mini-gmp/" prefix from files named in that

What would such a separation mean in practice? We could do separate
releases (release announcements are always good for visibility) and a
separate version number. But I think I'd prefer to keep it in the the
main gmp repo, and I hope we'll sort out the testing issues in a week or
two so it can benefit from gmp's testing infrastructure.
