I'd like to limit it to only hardware that has 32 and 64 bit float
support, not all things do (eg. palmtops, some games consoles).

I think it would be wise to keep this open to an extend.

For instance, many dsp systems seem to work best with fixed point and there is great source code available IIRC.

And it might be not the worst to have a unified API for different target platforms even when the actual implementations are not always compatible. I'm thinking of developers who are used to work on a 32/64 bit floating point system and decide to move their stuff to a fixed point environment. They would have to optimize the implementation only, not the whole design.

I don't know, if the Gamboy type of machines need to stay in focus then 8-)
