My two cents: this should be added as optional feature and its presence,
if wanted/needed, should be enabled at compilation time.

Maybe in a few years we could see if it has been widely adopted and if
so make GNU GMP usage the default setting (and/or discard the old
implementation). This should allow a smoother transition.

Hope this helps,
