> Hi all,

Hi Kevin,

Looks very interesting :). I'm trying to use your library with my lazy_exact
type by wrapping it in boost::rational< mp_int<> >. The problem I've run
into is that I need a specialization of std::numeric_limits< mp_int<> > in
order to use boost::rational with it. Do you have such a traits
