Re: rationals as a Lisp data type

I do not object to a data type which is expensive and useful.  I suspect
however, that rationals will be found to be less useful than, for example,
bigfloats or what Collins calls "binary rationals" (power of 2 denominators),
or perhaps IEEE standard floating point.
