A non-issue.  Breaking up the code into natural chunks actually helps
understanding and maintaining the library.

I moved GMP into Visual C++ several months ago and it was quite a
straightforward process.  I occasionally still use the M$ GMP library
without hitches.  Was it painful for you simply because you wanted only
some functions and nothing else?  In that case, there's nothing specific
about GMP that made it difficult. 

Sure, the code could do with more documentation, certainly on the
technical aspects and reasons for a particular choice of algorithm.
Perhaps you might care to contribute?
