    2323        In the current GMP implementation, GMP is configured to use GHC's GC memory, so C code in the same binary as GHC-compiled Haskell code cannot access GMP separately.  This problem was noted in [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/311 bug Ticket #311].  Simon Peyton-Jones suggested that a simple renaming of GHC-GMP functions would solve this problem and Bulat Ziganshin suggested simply using an automated tool to do this.  See [http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/glasgow-haskell-users/2006-August/010679.html Replacement for GMP].
