Thanks for sharing.

Note that we have a mini-mpq now.

I guess if it used some #ifdef instead of commenting out the code, so the 
same file could be user for gmp and mini-gmp, it could be interesting (not 
particularly to me since I never used mini-gmp, but to others). Maybe 
gmpxx.h could check if __MINI_GMP_H__ is defined and in that case not 
include gmp.h and not use anything mpf-related. __MINI_MPQ_H__ could be 
used to conditionally enable mpq if we don't want to enable it by default. 
(I am not saying any of the above is a good idea, just the first things 
that come to mind)

Or we could have a much more simplistic mini C++ wrapper without 
expression templates, if we are going to maintain 2 versions, although I 
am not fond of the idea of maintaining 2 versions.

I don't see a corresponding file. That could cause problems 
for numeric_limits at least.

You kept some operator<< that seems unlikely to compile.
