This might be of interest to the persons doing the Google SoC project
about bigints/bigfloats, although perhaps a bit too early. Some
others may also be interested on their own. I apologize if this is a
bit off-topic for others, this is a one-time email though.

The goal is to measure the performance of various numerical computing packages on a set of challenging problems, with a strong emphasis on accuracy. All packages with arbitrary precision capabilities are welcome to compete, with no restriction on the programming language of implementation, as long as you can run it on our competition machine (a 32-bit Pentium-4 3GHz processor running GNU/Linux). If you develop, maintain, or just use such a software, don't hesitate to take part in the friendly competition, telling us which software you intend to use. The competition will consist of 20 problems. The main emphasis will be on the correctness of the results, not the timings. Nevertheless, during the competition there will be just one hour of time for each participant to solve all the problems together.
