0004 /** Defines a typeded corresponding to the more precise of the two 
0005  *  floating point types.
0006  *  This is useful for mixed precision arithmetic, e.g. to determin the 
0007  *  return type. Example of use:
0008  *  template <class T, class U> 
0009  *  typename PreciseFloatType<T,U>::Type operator+( const Vector<T>& a, 
0010  *                                                  const Vector<U>& b) {
0011  *    typename PreciseFloatType<T,U>::Type result(a); // assuming constructability
0012  *    return a+=b;                    // and addition for Vector of different type.
0013  *  }
0014  *
0015  *  This implementation is very simple, it only handles float, double and long double.
0016  *  for all other types PreciseFloatType<T,U>::Type is double if not compared
0017  *  to long double, otherwise it is long double.
