My mistake in thinking the vni Complex number was a JSR, I think it's only
been applied to be a JSR, not accepted.

I'm thinking:

'Simple and usual' stuff goes into NumberUtils at the moment. Possibly
branching out into a MathUtils if enough are added.

Anything complicated is resisted unless good reason occurs. ie) Lang
shouldn't be trying to improve with a new type of BigDecimal class etc.

So to answer Mika's original question, yes it sounds good. What methods
would you like to submit and what structure do you have?

[ie) support int, double, BigDecimal, Number etc]
