Walter Brown and Marc Paterno from Fermilab are the LWG's numerics guys. If
they are in favor of such a proposal, it would be a big help. I'd suggest
you contact them and ask for their opinions. Contact me privately if you
need their email addresses.

Normally I would volunteer to champion almost any proposal coming out of
Boost, but I don't even know how to pronounce quaternion or octonion!
