We know, we never claimed that mini-gmp was supporting different limb sizes.
The suggestion was "by Paul" :-)

By the way, I pushed a possible adaptation of mini-gmp.

I underline that the GMP project is not supporting "mini-gmp with reduced
limb size" (yet), because that code does not have and did not pass enough
Moreover, the code will probably be changed (simplified) along the lines
proposed by Niels Möller.
