As I understand the integer.hpp does not support
types over 32 bits at present.

I used this library in my work
and I had to implement long long type.

I suppose it is not too hard to implement other
needed integer types (like _int64, _int128 on Microsoft and Intel compilers)
using types from boost/cstdint.hpp file.

But it requires slight redesign of library (integer.hpp)
and it may requires to introduce a recursion (not too deep).

I would like to implement this if it interests somebody.

Also I think user may get understandable error reports
through dummy types like
  struct too_much_bits_error;
  struct negative_number_of_bits_error;
with no body.

Best regards.
