Ha, and I think we can do a better job than the others! Surely in terms 
of performance!

Funny, I was indeed looking at the Julia and Python (and John's 
Matematica code) to learn how some of the operations on Unums work.

Still a lot to do though. I've basically only declared the type, still 
needs all the calculations.
