Richard, I'm curious (sometimes fatal :-) ) Bill has put together a fairly
detailed proposal and implementation using rationals. I haven't seen a similar
single discription and corresponding implementation on your proposal. 

I don't mean comments (such as review the archive). Do you have anything to
put up alongside Bill's proposal and implementation? 

If you have posted such a document then I must have missed it, could you repost
or send me a copy. I would be very interested in reading it.
