Sorry, I give up already on "gmp".  It never reports out-of-memory errors.  We
can change the allocation functions, but out of memory conditions must terminate
the program.  Even using longjmp() to bail out of the allocator is specified as
"don't do that".  There is no way this is compatible with Python short of
dedicating a separate process in which to run all long operations, but this
makes the interface slow as hell.
