It's not directly connected - except that what should have failed to
compile - a function that looks like:
bool functor(number const& a, number const& b)
return a - b;
instead compiled but does enirely the wrong thing (the bool return is a
result of a "poor man's typeof" emulation which also does the wrong thing
with multiprecision types - I'll fix that shortly).
