Verified. I expect mpzmodule.c is very old; the copy in Python 1.2
from 1995 is substantially the same as the one in 1.5, the changes
being mostly API renamings (INCREF -> Py_INCREF, object -> PyObject,
etc.). Presumably it was written when GMP 1.3.2 was still widely
deployed, and therefore it contains compatibility code for both
versions. Now that it's 2000, we can safely assume everyone will use
GMP 2, and the compatibility code could be dropped. (Though GvR might
be inclined to just drop the module...)

Guido, want me to check this fix in, after I've actually tried it out?
