Hi John. Thanks.

I would like to report another success with the proposed

I added partial adherence to the backend requirements
for an mp_number to my fixed-point class and verified
the computation of the area of a circle of radius (123 / 100)
with it.

The beautiful set of numbers below shows the results of
the area for:

        1. fixed-point Q15.16
        2. built-in float of 4 bytes

        3. built-in double of 8 bytes

        4. cpp_dec_float_100

Your wunderful creation provides unprecedented potential for
generic mathematical calculations!

Best regards, Chris.
