You should write that up in the BIP, along with a description of how exactly that would go; I suspect the most obvious way of dong that upgrade - just increase precision for everyone - would break compatbility too much to be practical. -- 'peter'[:-1]@petertodd.org 000000000000000010734953ce486a820b6f7907e879b1b6e30fccf603098bef
