I do not have need for such a class right now, as I just play the
intervals, and therefore floats are just fine.
Though I have written Haskell code for computing continued fraction
convergents, which is very useful for analyzing data, which I use in
Hugs. So rational numbers are useful - I just don't use them in ChucK,
But you bring up a question of where to put the stuff. Putting it up
on this list is just convenient for snippets really.
Check out <http://haskell.org/>. It is a wiki, I think. One can search
a lot of code there. Perhaps there should be something for ChucK.
