I agree with you on that it would be generally useful for Boost and that it
should fall back to the intrinsic types whenever possible. But wouldn't such
a thing restrict Wave to one precision only (in the end N will be a compile
time constant). What I really would like to see is something runtime
configurable. Or do you had in mind an integer<N>, where N is some possible
maximum defined at compile time?
