Any interest in multi-threaded code?

I'm new to GMP development. I have some knowledge of C under Windows, 
less so for GCC and Linux.

I have an idea for a multi-threaded version of the GMP FFT multiply 
code. I've had a browse through the archives and found a few references, 
but nothing to indicate that there's anything available. There was even 
a hint that it could be in an upcoming version, but I can't find any 

Would there be any interest for the team if I tried to do this?

If the answer is yes, I'll have to go under the radar for a while to 
install Linux on an older machine I have, learn Linux and the GCC 
packages, and then do the code development and testing. I'm prepared to 
do that, but would prefer to think that there'd be some use for it at 
the end of the tunnel - if it succeeds, of course.
