So instead of providing an own implementation
this would mean to write a C++ wrapper for GMP.

They need one anyway, see their FAQ:

Q: Is there a C++ wrapper for GMP?

A: No, none as far as we know. Many people have started writing one,
but nobody has ever sent us any useful code. "Useful"
here means complete, efficient, and well-tested. (We intend to write a
spec later and put it here.)

Would a C++ wrapper for GMP be a useful contribution to boost?
