Yes, but for something like boolean operations, this means it works
sometimes and completely fails at others. I can see the logic of
accepting the uncertainty and hoping for the best in practice, but it
does beg the question whether Boost should contain such libraries. There
are many buggy floating point boolean op libraries out there. Why do we
need another?
