The reason that Simon and I are quiet this week is that Simon is on holiday and I'm at PLDI.  We'll be back in action next week.

| I was curious what the best way would be to access the various useful

| making my own (strict) Integer type, but it would be much easier if I
| can just use the FFI to import the required functions and get at the
| mpz_t inside Integers somehow.
| I am not positive, but it looks like ghc seems to have primitives which
| call the gmp functions internally rather than using the FFI.. At least I
| didn't see an obvious example poking around in the library.
| Has someone already done this? a Math.Integer.Advanced (or something)
| library would be quite a useful addition to ghc.
