Ah, well looks like you're going to have to dig into GMP itself. Perhaps 
you might be lucky if there's only a couple of mpX-specific macros or 
functions you need to hook to get it done.

BTW: I replied privately to you because your reply to my post had not been 
CC'd to the list. I don't think there was anything in my post to worry 
about, but had I known it would be hitting the mail-lists (and thus, the 
archives too) I might have at least double-checked what I'd written 
before sending (rather than hastily blathering, touch-typing, and hitting 
the "send" hotkey without a second thought). AFAIK, general netiquette is 
not to forward copies or quotations from private mail to public lists, at 
least not without first cross-checking with the sender. In this case, no 
harm done.
