Agreed on both counts. I don't see gcd/lcm as fundamental to the rational
header, so having somewhere better to put them makes sense. And anything
that gets rid of the nasty hacks for std::abs in rational.hpp has my vote
(even if it's just dumping the nasty hacks on someone else :-)

How soon can I have them? :-)
