mpz_get_d() with rounding

The function mpz_get_d() rounds towards zero. This is incompatible with 
the usual floating-point semantics of rounding to nearest. In C on my 
machine for example, a conversion from unsigned long to double rounds to 
nearest. Would you agree with adding additional functions (or one 
function with an MPFR-style rounding flag) for other rounding modes?
