One of the rational<> issues is "Should it be standardized?"

The LWG looked at rational<> for TR1, and decided that it would make more
sense to consider it later, when a big int class was available. There is now
a proposed big int class, so the rational<> question may come up again.

One of the questions that the LWG will as is "Are there enough real-world
uses to justify the addition of rational<> to the Standard Library?"

Thus it might be helpful if real-world users (if any) of boost::rational
would occasionally make themselves known.
