Hi Michel,

thanks for your input.

Are there any news concerning the licensing problems?
See http://pauillac.inria.fr/~aschmitt/cwn/2003.10.07.html#12
and http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2003/12/msg00240.html
if you don't know what I am talking about.

> 2. MLGMP : bindings for the GNU Multiprecision library, maintained by David Monniaux (http://www.di.ens.fr/~monniaux/download/mlgmp.tar.gz). It provides support for big integers, for rationnals and for big precision floats.

As far as you can tell, is it still maintained?  The latest
item in ChangeLog appears to be on November 2002.

> 3. Numerix : another multiprecision library maintained by me (http://pauillac.inria.fr/~quercia/cdrom/bibs/numerix-0.19b.tar.gz). It provides support for big integers only, on x86/Unix platforms.

Do you have any plans to improve portability?
Thanks again,
