cent and ucent would be integers with values between
170141183460469231731687303715884105727 and 0 to
340282366920938463463374607431768211455, respectively. Their
implementation would not mean that any kind of 128-bit float
would also be available. For bigger floating-point numbers
there's at least two packages on dub:
These are arbitrary-precision, and probably quite a bit slower
than any built-in floats.
