That is why I'm asking. The arithmetic in the library currently does
saturation arithmetic. At this point, Joel says "saturation for sure," and
you [David] say error instead. I currently have it working with saturation,
but I can remove the saturation an cause an error. I really don't know what
the best course of action here is--which is why I'm asking.
