That looks extremely interesting!
However, I have a feeling (perhaps eroneously, given that I only
started to look at it), that the support in outfmt is there only for the
simplest variants of quaternion and octonion inputs. I was under the
impression that a full-fledged parser was needed to clean the awfullness
that are my current implementations (an octonion parser which might call
a quaternion parser which might call a complex parser (or rely on the
standard library input),...).
