Not sure what a "BigDecimal" type is meant to be, but seeing as
though there is a potential candidate for a BigInt you could use
that to produce an arbitrary precision interface type (this specific
implementation will be rational).

Some of the other developing projects such as the computational
geometry libraries will in the long run require such a capability.
