Hi Bill,

I've just read this whole thread, and at some point you mentioned that could
could go back to a template version; I would really like that.

A few months ago I needed a fixed-point decimal class to perform some
geometric computations. The first thing I tried was your class, but since it
used a fixed integer type it turned out to be quite useless due to overflow
(which arised quite quickly in my application)

If you could turn the fixed decimal class into a template so I can use it
with an arbitrary length integer class it will be just what I need.

BTW; I need a compile-time-fixed number of decimals, and the same for all
decimal values. If you can do something to improve performance for those
cases it would be great.
