Subject: [boost] [multiprecision] Radix-2 typedef naming convention
From: Christopher Kormanyos (e_float_at_[hidden])

Hi folks,

Lost the original message here. Sorry.

In John's new radix-2 MP back end, names are used for
common types such as:

float24_t, float53_t, float113_t.

In our proposal for floating-point typedef's having
specified widths, we use names such as:

float32_t, float64_t, float128_t.
Both conventions make sense in sensible ways.
But only one naming convention should be used,
and it should be used consistently.

Which one will it be?

Sincerely, Chris.
