I have no doubt of the utility of a fixed point library with constraints
given at run-time, but I will prefer that the interface be based on
Range and Resolution (as in
instead of in IntegerBits and FractionalBits.
I need sometimes to have fixed points that have less bits than
fractional bits and give negative numbers for IntegerBits or
FractionalBits seems to me counterintuitive. Of course this is just a
point of view and conversion between the different formats could be
provided by the library.
