SystemC ( has a numeric datatype library. Need to include/link
in everything, but datatypes can be used on their own.

Mentor's datatypes at

I'd say neither license is acceptable for boost, but they should be both
good enough for testing. Tests could be included, but people running
them would have to get those libraries by themselves.

I'd go for the Mentor library, if I had to chose.
