That's right. When reading Michael's messages, I always
wonder why he insists on speeding up GMP and MPFR.
I bet that GMP and MPFR are those parts of his software
that already _are_ near the optimum run-time efficiency.

As you (Patrick) suggested, Michael should concentrate on
speeding up the algorithm that makes use of MPFR. It sounds
like his algorithm follows a brute-force approach of trying
all possible combinations of values of some variables.
