| Also, I plan to define some mathematical/physical/etc. constants, but this
| may well be delegated to a dedicated constants library, such as what has
| been discussed at the list.

You may remember that math constants have previously been the subject of considerable discussion and a second formal review is being scheduled in June whne I get back from holiday. I've made plenty of 40 decimal digit values available, but their presentation seems a highly contentious issue :-((

| I guess I'll wait for the MSVC release version, and try it again, there.
| Hm, g++ 3.2 doesn't handle it, either...
| Never mind what I said about "conservative code". Apparently, it's not. :)
| Apparently, I've got a portability job to do, once the functionality is in
| place. :)

Hopefully the quicksand of C++ compilers is setting, but not quite yet :-(

Good luck.
