I suppose this needs discussion on pypy-dev. It is great, but the major issue is that it uses "__int128", which is an integer type that is only sometimes available --- and more often not: it is present on MSVC, but for GCC it requires 4.6 (and likely 64-bit machines, not 32-bit ones). There is no way we can just merge it into trunk: it would stop compiling on most of our buildbots, to start with.
So the discussion is about what to do from there. Stian, I assume you'd have to add the proper conditional compilation and support the case of no int128, unless we can think of something better.
