Should I be surprised that you seem to be suggesting that the Interval Library
would not handle unsigned integers?
Purely an aside - all the math constants we have discussed are floating point -
and also I'm unsure of the practical usefulness of integer intervals of pi!
Apart from the story, probably an apocraphal lawyer joke, of the US state that
tried to legislate pi to be plain simple 3 :-)
