For a 32bit platform using 32bit mp_limb_t, this is only 2048 limbs, so
well within range of mpz_t::_mp_size. Having the same limit on all
platforms should be fine.

Does this limit apply to bignum values in lisp objects, or to
intermediate values inside libgmp, which may require extra space ?
The documentation for `integer-width' should make this clear.
