thanks for stepping in. I would expect that the export just exports the memory representation of the number - maybe with flipped order via msv_first parameter. Especially, something exported via export_bits and than imported via import_bits should be the same, at least on the same platform.
That said, I actually was just looking for a way to implement a hash function and thought it was straightforward to use chunks of char. But I could also compute the hash on the str() output.
