If anyone is still interested in this concept whatsoever, we are
holding a mini-workshop on the current developments of Unums at
the University of California Santa Cruz on Oct 24th. We'd love
to have some participation from interested parties, including
presentations on any attempts to implement (in D?) etc. Please
see https://systems.soe.ucsc.edu/2016-symposium or contact me via

Having just looked at the slides again, I believe this will
break compatibility with std.math, (for example it throws out
NaN), just as D has broken full compatibility with all of C++.
UNUM II is also proposing to break completely from IEEE 754
floats and gain Computation with mathematical rigor .......
Can anyone tell me who are the maths experts, and hard science
users, around here ?
