(First reported in 2005) Why isn't there a C<no bignum> pragma? It seems a logical compliment, like C<use integer> and C<no integer>. For instance I'd like to use bignum in conjunction with PDL to insure maximum precision however then some of the arguments given to piddle constructors are bignum objects and PDL complains. I can manually add ->numify() but then it's ugly and no longer transparent.
