Re: GStreamer 0.01

Shouldn't it really be done in Glib? Glib provides the gint64
and guint64 types and I assume GStreamer just uses them. So it
should be the Glib typemap that maps them to appropriate
Math::BigInt types.

Are you referring to my paragraph about bigint/bignum? That would
be superfluous if GStreamer had Glib typemap, I suppose.

And using Math::BigInt::Lite would be harder (not possible?).

But at least the first paragraph still applies: anyone wanting to
do any amount of math on those values will want an XS-based core
library for Math::BigInt (::FastCalc, ::GMP, ::Pari) instead of
the default ::Calc that is pure-Perl.
