Hi Richard,

I've updated the bigint source files in the boost sandbox; they are now
subject to the terms of the Boost License 1.0. AFAIK, this change means
that you may proceed as you wish :). In any case I'm curious: how will
your big integer library differ from the bigint in the sandbox? Since
even bigint isn't the first arbitrary magnitude integer library
targetted at boost, I wonder if perhaps it may be worth your while to
work from one of the existing implementations rather than start anew.
