Thanks for the comments Paul. As to the usefulness of putting gmp_powm
into the public interface, I'd guess that it would considerably speed-up
my particular application, but I'll have to benchmark it before knowing
for sure. If it IS much faster, I'll send another report. (If it isn't
much faster, I doubt I'll bother to report it.)
