Paul you should refine your grep. Lastly there were some libraries that
changed already from math:: to integer.
IMO, the single library I see is using math::gcd/lcm is multiprecision,
and I'm not sure removing this dependency is really needed.
Please provide the result of your grep.
I don't think we should remove math::gcd/lcm, just forward to the
