Great work! However I would not throw away the links to the Internet
archive because the pages stored there link to the original HTML pages
which are lost. It's cumbersome to navigate through the archived pages.  
The Darcs repository at cvs.haskell.org is no official update by Jan
Skibinski - I set up that repository to simplify further development.

I added the keyword "continued fractions" to the Wiki page so the module
can be discovered by other people.
