so the best solution is probably to store
this in our wrapper class. As we provide
the operators for our wrapper, we then also
can take care of this infinity handling

Just out of curiosity, who makes such decisions
in the GMP developer community? And what is the
opinion of the developers of the C++ wrapper that
comes with GMP?   To implement a specialisation
of numeric_limits is quite natural for a number
