I've heard Clean mentioned before in this context, but I haven't found
the Clean numeric class system described yet.  Can you send me a
pointer to their class system, or just give me a description?

Does each operation really have its own class?  That seems slightly
silly.  Are the (/) and 'recip' equivalents independent, and
independent of (*) as well?
