You pointed out to me a proposal from someone for a non-IEEE floating
point scheme that happens to match an approach I've used before.  Let me
know if you have trouble finding it and I can take a look.

Before standardization, I would love to see someone take a candidate
scheme through the proofs and properties of the paper, "What every
computer scientist should know about floating point arithmetic."

float_pkg

Hi,
Anyone out there using instances of the fixed or floating point packages
that are different from what is currently provided.  Are there specific
instances it would make sense to add to the IEEE library?

Best Regards,
Jim
