OK, that's fine - if someone can define the ... bit for me.
But I still think that removing abs() is better. Can anybody who is
genuinely attached to having an abs() function for rationals, please speak
up. Otherwise it goes. I'd like to get a working version of rational<>
released. I can put abs() back in version N, when the larger issues on this
whole topic have been clarified.
If no-one starts a "save the abs" campaign, I'll produce a demo class which
exposes the problem clearly.
