The code I've upload is capable of handling fractional exponents.
  It uses ints for the numerator and denominator. I considered
using arbitray length compile time integers, but that seemed like
too much work.

I'm cleaning up the code I put in yahoo (fixed a few bugs, gotten
it to compile on another compiler) and will send an update soon.
