I agree strongly. It has always seemed to me to be a real hole in Boost not
to have an infinite precision number type.

A decimal number proposal is starting to move through the C and C++
committees. It is based on work done at IBM, and is designed to work as
either library software, or with a hardware accelerator, IIRC. Thus anyone
interested might want to become familiar with that proposal before doing
any new decimal work.
