Feature request: Base 94

Hi Ariel,

This is a fairly... unique request. I don't see a lot of motivation to
include this in GMP. Your best bet for introducing into GMP is to code up a
patch yourself. The existing code to accept up to base 62 is pretty neat
and not too complicated. It would be a fun exercise, extending it to 94.

That being said, even if you present a patch, I wouldn't get your hopes up
that this would be incorporated into GMP. Ultimately, you may need to just
forever compile a customized GMP, or use your patch as an external .c file
in whatever C code with which you are using GMP.
