I just updated the document to make MPIR_debug_state be VOLATILE.  I'm up in a few minutes for the 1st vote here at the Forum in Chicago.  

Martin and I talked about this in person: technically, this is a change in the document that was formally read in Stuttgart.  I will ask the Forum if they're comfortable voting on this, or if we reset the clock and call this meeting the really-first-reading (and we have a first vote in December).  Technically, we should do the latter, but it may be a small enough change to eek through.

I'll let you know how it goes.
