Thanks, Vicente. I'll think about it. I am aware of a young programmer
we recently worked with who would be technically capable of going
far in this project.
But I don't know if I should mentor two projects. I might not have
enough time for that.
I'll let you know soon.

I don't know if Google accepts dual mentors. If not, you could mentor
this project that is very close to the domain you are working with
Boost.Multiprecission. I would be happy to help as much as possible.
Please be free to add you name as possible mentor.
