Hi David,
I wonder if there would be any interest in a Computable Reals Library?
I think it will be a great addition for scientific calculations.

The general idea is representing a number by an algorithm with random
access to its digits, passing around the number and lazy accessing its
digits to answer predicates.
A good reference would be the Computable Calculus book by Oliver Aberth,
and a good use case would be on Discrete-Event Simulators.

If there is interest, I can make a proposal for it.
To scope it to something achievable in a GSOC, I would only propose to
implement operators +, -, *, /, =, !=, <, and make proper documentation.
The implementation should follow the algorithms proposed Aberth's book
chapters 1 and 2.

Book for ref:

Best regards,
Damian Vicino
