I had private correspondence with Paul Moore, who agreed that int_type
should be public. I didn't mention it at the time, but I think
param_type should also be public.

Since a good deal of time has passed, I think it's okay for me to say
here that Paul also indicated that he is no longer interested in
maintaining Boost.Rational. He said he would post a message here
asking for volunteers, but I don't think he ever did.

I mentioned to Paul that Jens Maurer had offered to make the change
for him, but I don't remember if Paul ever contacted Jens.
