Ahh, ok.. Id been wondering about that one for a while ;-)
just looking at the package list now then, we seem to have something
of an excess of gmp packages in that case.. in particular we have
gmp gmp2 and libgmp2 which all appear to be the same lib release but
with different debian revisions.. I can understand keeping gmp1
around if things may depend on it, but is there a good reason for
keeping all those gmp2 versions in the archive? If this is now cruft
it might be nice to sweep it out before the next release.
