> Are there any plans to add a bignum class to Boost?
I tried to do this and submitted 2 versions so people could criticize it and
always had to fight with people that demanded that the library has to be as
fast as the fastest open source implementation (in this case, GMP.) I can
not claim that speed, but I implemented a really fast big number library
using assembler only on the critical paths on the most CPU demanding
instructions. That was not enough for some boost-ers.
