And personally I think it would by now be reasonable to require MPFR 3.0 
or 3.1 as a minimum version should someone wish to make the various 
cleanups mentioned in the April discussion, so avoiding claiming to 
support configurations few developers will be testing.  (MPFR 3.1 came out 
nearly five years ago - 3 Oct 2011.)
