I doubt it ... I think the optimal number of decimal s.f. would depend on the
binary exponent.  But I'll experiment when I have time.

The spec describes .dig as "number of decimal digits of precision", which seems
ambiguous.  Is it a property of the type or the value?  If it's a type
property, is it the maximum number of s.f. that may be required to express a
number of the type unambiguously, or the number of s.f. to which numbers are
guaranteed to be storeable unambiguously?  If a value property, it is the
number of s.f. according to which of the approaches I listed, or something
