We're using it to hold onto some of the rationals you encounter in the
financial world. Sometimes we use it to represent prices, which can
usually be thought of as a number of ticks over a conversion factor.
It's more for transport than anything else; we aren't doing any
extensive or involved calculations with it.
Every one of our rational usages uses int as the template parameter.
