I've been sidetracked by flu. The main thing I still don't like about v0.2
is that it uses a reinterpret_cast<> in an inline template function to
provide the application access to double. I fear that could be optimized
away someday, so am pondering putting that string-to-double casting in
a .cpp file, which can be compiled with -fno-strict-aliasing in the library
Also, James Kanze in the newsgroup recommended using frexp() and ldexp()
to do the double conversions portably, which would be nice in v0.3, but
I haven't done that yet. That's the implementation that should really be
tested on OS X when it's done.
