Thanks for the elaborate reply.

My goal is not neccessarily to build the fastest most accurate
mandelbrot calculator. I was merely looking around for alternatives to
a "big number" library that I use on an embedded platform. The one I
use currently uses 1 byte per digit which is rather resource heavy for
an mcu with only 2KB of ram. Now GMP is probably also a bit too heavy
but I got carried away :-)

I somewhat documented what I did:
You'll notice that there is hardly any difference beyond 64 bit.
