Is there any way to combine such an effort with the inclusion of some
"fraction" syntax, allowing for efficient (and exact, when possible)
computation of the previously debated "a*b/c" pattern?

I think that would be an excellent addition to Boost, particularly in
light of Boost's meta-purpose to suggest new features for the
C++ standard. This relates to C/C++ compatibility because WG14
is currently doing work in fixed-point types for the benefit of embedded
systems. You might want to check out PDTR 18037 at
