I would love if Bjorn could write the documentation for me. The ideas are
already explained in the sources, so it is just a matter of formalizing and
formatting it, perhaps using the new stuff submitted by Bill Kempf.
I would also like Bjorn to take a close look (as closer as possible) to the
way range checking is performed when mixing float/integer and
singed/unsigned types, since that's really tricky.
