Is there a way to bound the computational resources needed for such beasts?
I would think a type of algebraic numbers would be much more useful than
transfinite cardinals, but to do it properly perhaps requires a whole
computational algebra package.
On a related issue: How practical would the proposed rational type be for
serious computation considering that the results of simple operations are
likely to grow in size for both numerators and denominators?
