Subject: [boost] [rational] optional over/underflow checking
From: Dan Searles (dansearles_at_[hidden])

Sandbox now includes the test driver.

All the updates are in the single rational header file, so
this is a relatively small update. Rational.h, however, has
had small updates before. This update centers on adding
an optional over/underflow check, that would generate
an exception if the result of an operation could not
be represented with full numeric precision. Seeking
comments on the update and any steps/requirements
needed to get the update accepted for release.

BTW, are there any status updates on the unlimited precision
numeric class effort?
