Please take a look at this library:

"Algorithmic C (AC) datatypes are a class-based C++ library that provides arbitrary-length integer, fixed-point and complex data types. They enable algorithm, system and hardware designers to precisely model bit-true behavior in C++ specifications while accelerating simulation speeds by 10-200x faster versus alternate datatypes."

I believe this is an example of the explicit treatment you are referring to. This is the best open source example of such that I know of.
