I can only speak for P0037 although P0106 has also been reviewed by SG14.
Adding <cmath>-like functions was discussed at our meeting in March. It's
also briefly discussed in P0037: https://github.com/johnmcfarla
The proposal is quite tightly scoped. However, that doesn't stop me
prototyping surrounding features in the reference implementation [
https://github.com/johnmcfarlane/fixed_point/] - especially if I think they
might warrant standardization at a later date. These functions are quite a
lot to bite off which is why I only supplied a few wrappers so far. I'm
sure it's not easy to get better performance that FPU-supported
floating-point variants. However, I am interested in seeing if I can make
use of the algorithms in Boost.fixed_point.
