Hi all!

I am familiar with the Mathematica code for factoring an integer. It is nice that one can even factor an integer over the Gaussian integers:
FactorInteger[10,GaussianIntegers->True]

I was wondering if there was a way to factor an integer over a different field - for example, Q(sqrt(-3)). (Z[i] represents the Gaussian integers.) I have been scouring Wolfram demonstrations and how-to's and have found nothing. Can anyone help?
