[Python-Dev] Optionally using GMP to implement long if available

I've read some of the past discussion about including GMP into the
python core and understand the reasons for not doing so.  Rather than
that, what about patching Python's long implementation to use GMP if
it's available, and the default implementation if not?  Are there any
philosophical or technical objections to this?  If not, I would consider
drafting a patch.
