Done, added my new proposal:

> 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:
> - https://www.elsevier.com/books/computable-calculus/
> - https://books.google.ca/books?id=sDp0enu9iEUC&pg=PR4&lpg=
> Best regards,
