Default GWNUM?

What is a GWNUM, and what does it stand for? It sounds familiar, but I can't seem to find what it is and what it stands for.

gwnum is the math library at the heart of Prime95 that does the actual math calculations. The rest (GUI, PrimeNet code, etc.) is effectively the icing on the cake. gwnum is also used in the programs PFGW and LLR (which specialize primarily in non-Mersenne numbers).
