PyGMP is a wrapper for the GNU multiple precision library. It currently sports
two types, GMPi (for doing integer arithmetic), and GMPrand (for handling
PyGMP has been specifically created with the goal to enable users to subclass
the GMP* types to add additional user functionality in Python. Otherwise, the
library should be functionally equivalent to GMPy or mxNumber, except having
been written from scratch explicitly for GMP 4.1.*, and being somewhat
cleaner in implementation (11 source files, not 1).
UNIX-like operating system (has not been tested under Windows, and probably
won't run unchanged) with gcc
GMP 4.1.* (advised GMP 4.1.3)
Python 2.3.* (advised Python 2.3.4)
PyGMP is released under a BSD-license, see the source archive for more

- Create wrappings for the mpr and mpf types of GMP.
- Document the plugin architecture for supporting other types natively in C,
when GMP changes.
- Add more documentation for functions.
- Handle corner cases like division by zero, etc. more gracefully.
- Add Windows bindings.
