Using GMP with NTL is an option (for speed), but I there is NTL code which
does not use GMP.
We definitely need a big int and an arbitrary precision in Boost, but I am
unclear how to proceed (and I am not volunteering ;-).

| Yes. But NTL could do with a few more overloads for operator= and
| operator+ and so on. Not a big deal by any means. The
