I would certainly look into existing utilities if they fit the bill. Since
this project would oft be for somewhat mathy code, there might be a good
reason to implement some libraries like multiprecision, polygon or ublas.

At the moment I cannot see a good use for multi-precision, as everything I
can think of is better done by the programmers themselves using that
library in conjunction with this one, but that may change.

Michael, from what I can tell a relatively complete avoidance of pointers
is possible since many of the objects used will be adapter classes.
Unfortunately the proposal is no longer editable and this design
consideration cannot be stated within it.

Many thanks,
