The series looks exactly like e^(a log z), which is
what we have right now.

I tried to make BOOST_MPL_MATH_DOUBLE work for GCC in
strict mode over the weekend. In particular, I tried
to take advantage of the feature that allows double to
be implicitly cast to long long in an integral
constant expression. (For those of you who are just
joining us, GCC is currently treating int(...) and
static_cast<...>(...) as runtime functions. Not even
BOOST_MPL_AUX_STATIC_CAST is working for me.)
However, GCC 3.4 and above no longer support double&
as a non-type template parameter, and integral_c<long
long, double_value> also fails. So, I'm at a loss

If any GCC experts out there notice anything that I've
missed--other than relaxed mode--please let me know.
The syntax for BOOST_MPL_MATH_DOUBLE is much more
elegant than string_c_to_double, and we'd like for
everyone to be able to use it.
