In cvt_n.h: Any reason you use the T(x) syntax for the type
conversion rather than static_cast<T>(x)?

I'm not entirely happy with your Rounder. Obviously, there are
several rounding schemes. First, yours appears to be just for
rounding to integers. That's fine, but then a longer name may be in
order, since a function that rounds to some arbitrary level may
eventaully be added. Second, there's truncate non-integral part,
round towards zero, round towards -INF, round towards even integer,
round to nearest int (with different ways of treating a half). Does a
policy based rounder sound like overkill?
