There is work underway by Ronald Garcia and Andrew Lumsdaine. It is in the
Boost sandbox CVS under the name "bigint". Take a look at for information about the
sandbox, and*checkout*/boost-sandbox/boost-sandbox/libs/bigint/index.html?content-type=text%2Fplain&rev=1.4

Perhaps if you posted your impressions of the library it might motivate the
developers to move forward.
