  * GMP_LIMB_BYTES : where is it ? I was not able to find anything like it
    in gmp.h not even when searching for " 4" (blank,digit 4).
    Nothing is explicitely defined to be 4 except __GNU_MP__ .
Sorry, only the bit limb count is exported.

  * mpf_t : 4 extra bytes can not be called an issue these days not even
    if you use hundreds ore more mpf_t elements.

Depends on application, I suppose.  And caches are finate even
these days.
