Log Message:
Update to 6.1.
Changes since 5.8:
 +  Added the module "Carp::Clan" to the distribution.
 +  Splitted the module; separated XS and overloaded Perl
    part for improved performance (reduces loading time for XS part).
 +  Corrected the handling of numerical overflow in arithmetic methods
    ("add()", "subtract()", "Multiply()", "from_Dec()", "new_Dec()").
 +  Methods "add()" and "subtract()" now return the carry as well as
    the overflow flag if called in list context (only the carry in
    scalar context, as before).
 +  Added two new methods "inc()" and "dec()", which return the overflow
    flag (whereas "increment()" and "decrement()" return the carry flag).
    The new methods also allow to copy-and-increment/decrement in addition
    to in-place operation.
 +  Methods "from_Dec()" and "new_Dec()" now allow you to enter large
    positive numbers which will have the MSB set (this was forbidden
    previously because these numbers are considered to be negative in
    two's complement binary representation).
and some bugfixes and compatibility changes.
