For unsigned, yes, but if int_bits includes the sign bit, it's
result_int_bits = x_int_bits + y_int_bits  1
(And it looked in the code like int_bits did, which does match what
boost.integer does, and means you can do fixed_pt<16,16,int32_t>,
which I think is more intuitive than that not actually fitting.)
