Numbers bigger than memory

I was trying to compute hyperpowers, such as 8^7^6^5^4^3^2, or 7^^7, in
order to further perform operations such as modular arithmetic. And I've
found that all programs I know cast an overflow error.
It would be nice that GMP could be able to use numbers larger than memory.
Maybe using ...
...some fast in-memory compression algorithms.
... being able to work directly with disk databases.
... allowing distributed computation.
