Thanks for the proposal, I ran it by TC39 yesterday and it advanced to
stage 0. This means work getting to stage 1, per:
The committee liked it not only for emulating int64 and uint64 more
efficiently (e.g., for Emscripten), even though we intend to support
int64 and uint64 value objects, but also for bignum emulation (using
64-bit "bigits" or "big digits", h/t Mark Miller), decimal emulation, etc.
is based on your original post, but with a name change suggested by
several on TC39: imuluh => umulh.
Feedback welcome. Thanks again for suggesting this -- thanks to @mraleph
for his earlier proposal too.
