True, any multi-member struct will be a huge PITA for arithmetic
Using int8 if available or float8 if not might work pretty nicely
now that I think about it, at least from a coding point of view.
You could hide a lot of the differences in the PG_GET and PG_RETURN
But do we want to have such a radical difference in accuracy and
range across platforms?
