IEEE float co-processors

I have not been thrilled with this ongoing meandering about floating
point, but I'd like to take exception to your statement about leaving
intermediate result precision unspecified. It would be nice if a
program working on one machine also worked on another. Surely that is
what portability is supposed to insure, not that the language is so
general that any floating point result is OK. Make everything BIGNUM
and forget it.
