Missing GMP: For handling large numbers it will be slower.  It will still
behave asymptotically ideal, but the factor in front is just larger.  This
matters only if your interest lies in establishing world records in number
theory and such.

Missing Ginsh: No twisty little maze of passages to explore.  :-)

Actually I don't see what the problem is with getting things to work on
win32.  I was under the assumption that it had already been ported for
Cygwin by David Billinghurst.
