If you mean to make the arbitrary precision arithmetic available inside
of the libpq, no there are no such plans.
The functions, which you can find in src/backend/utils/adt/numeric.c,
are designed and optimized to live inside of the PostgreSQL database
backend. There are several other arbitrary precision packages out in the
world, that fit alot better into client applications.
