Subject: [Caml-list] Big_int comparisons
Does anyone know why there's no support for Big_int comparisons?  I know
that Michel Quercia hacked them in at some point as part of his Numerix
package, so it doesn't appear to be impossible.

A second question: does anyone know whether the performance of Big_int
is now better than it was, and how it compares to the alternatives, such
as mlgmp and numerix?  I currently use numerix and am considering
dumping it for Big_int, in the interest of improving portability and
reducing compilation woes.  But I want to get an estimate of what kind
of performance hit I'll see.
