Why not use Ocaml's own Bigints, or Nats if you need all the speed the
low-level implemetation gives you? You may need to link a special
top-level with libnums.a.

As far as I know, Ocaml's underlying implementation is faster than GMP,
older, stabler and more complete.

I got your message. I couldn't read it. It was a cryptogram.
