I have decided I shouldn't be. The newer Big::Float / Big::Int pass their
(much augmented) harness tests so I won't worry that they fail against the test
suite of a much older predecessor. I have upload libmath-bigint-perl, along
with a libmath-numbercruncher-perl which (Build-)?Depends on it.
That should settle the bug report on Math::NumberCruncher failing with a
missing Math::BigFloat functionality not present in the older default version.
Good judgment comes from experience; experience comes from bad judgment.
