I would like to try my skills on this one. I have already created
a very rough outline of such a bridge. You can look at it here:

There are of course important parts missing: the exact mapping of
GMP primitives onto GTP primitives and vice versa have not been
done yet.

My impression is that a lot of testing on different machines will
be necessary in order to cope with any installation-dependent
peculiarities which may arise on the machines in Japan. Is anyone
aware of the distribution they are using? (I shamelessly assumed
Linux as operating system of course, otherwise we will have a
problem ;-)
