 Hi, we're using your MP library, with the cpp_int_backend and fixed sized
 numbers, along with the "Maybe Boost Hash" library to implement
 lightweight RSA signature verification (previously done with
 LibTomCrypt+LibTomMath), so first of all thanks for making this possible

 Unless otherwise stated, always assume I'm using MSVC10 32bit (with /Oxs
 /GL /LTCG) with the above use case (fixed size cpp_ints)...

 Now, onto the issues ;D

 I would expect do_assign() to simply evaluate to simply std::memcpy,
 however it does not:
 - it seems that the this->resize(other.size(), other.size()); call fails
 to resolve to a nop (check your code)
 - why are you using "checked std::copy" instead of a straigh std::memcpy?

 ps. MSVC has a very nice debugger and disassembly window so I'll refrain
 from posting codegen in any of my tickets.
