glad to see you have decided to post on this ML.
I think the goal is to implement something close to the C++ Fixed Point
C++1y proposal. You can look at my prototype to see if you are confident
with the complexity (template meta-programming) needed to solve the
problem at hand.
Of course you can make a proposal for GSoC that is not based on the
C++1y proposal that could imply a simpler implementation, but that would
miss some of the features I'm locking for.
So the fisrt thing you can do is to understand the C++1y proposal,
inspect my prototype and then see if you want to implement the C++1y
proposal independently of my prototype.
If you prefer to go towards a less static type approach for
fixed-points, there are some implementations that you can found on the
web. I don't remember none particularly, but I would replay once I have
found some of them. There is also a lot of mail exchanges that you could
try to digest in the Boost ML.
The make a concrete proposal and send it either directly to GSoc to this
ML or to me.
