We're getting old and grumpy, aren't we?  :-D

GMP can compute with "huge" numbers.  If using mpn, the only limit is
your RAM.  On 64-bit machines when using mpz, mpf or mpq the limit is
about 40 billion decimal digits.

I don't know about mpfr's limits, but as it was designed much later than
mpf, it might have a better design wrt operand sizes.
