I'm not really sure I know what you mean by "do we want to get into all of this?". If we're going to have a Complex class, we have to. But "getting into it" might involve saying that APL, CL, and Ada are the best, so we use those. This is the kind of problem where, if someone wants to get more precise, they turn to CPAN. Luke
