Sounds good.

Sounds good, though I think we should have different bindings to avoid
needing global variables for rounding mode, exceptions, and similar.
I'm thinking we add a FPEnv type that holds all of that and all the FP
number types have a reference to the FPEnv type. That way, we can
avoid needing to pass the FPEnv to all the operations, we only need to
pass it to the operations that produce a FP number without any FP
numbers as input (mostly type conversions from integer or bits).

Will discuss on bug report.
