For a project I'm working on, I'd like to have support for gmp in
pypy. I have a ctypes pypy module, but from what I understand, pypy's
ctypes are a bit slow compared to CPython. What's the best way to get
access to get access to libgmp from python? Would you be against a
pull request that added libgmp as an RPython module?
