There's also the issue of licensing. gwnum's license is incompatible with the GPL (per the FSF's definition, it isn't even free, but that's irrelevant here). People have been known to link gwnum into GMP-ECM, and while compiling and linking for personal use is OK under the GPL, redistributing those binaries is not. I'm not sure if the same restrictions would apply to GMP itself, which is dual-licensed under the GPL and LGPL, if you ever consider going that route.
