Thanks for your advice, I found many discussions about the fixed point
library in mailing list archive. It come in handy.

I want to implement library, of course, based on the C++1y proposal and
your prototype. I just interested about other implementations,
I think they also become useful.

I will send my proposal on your email soon.

Thanks for your help,
