Yes indeed, William Walster is pushing this at Sun.

Since the interface of Sun's library and mine are rather similar,
this is not really an issue. I'm not happy that Sun's library
restricts the interval base type to float and double.

For boost, I'd like to have a generic solution that avoids the
std::complex<> trap: It would be nice to get a
std::complex<boost::rational<> > for free, but this is impossible,
because std::complex<> is specified to work with float, double, long
double only. :-(

Also, I'd like to see a slightly less tutorial-oriented
documentation for boost.
