Proposal: 1) Number (integer or decimal) to Array 2) Array to Number (integer or decimal)

Is it fair to suggest that transforming numeric values to and from arrays
isn't the ultimate goal of this proposal? Based on your examples, it seems
there are specific manipulations you would like to be able to perform to
numeric values, and your contention is that these manipulations would be
more straightforward if various components of that value (i.e., the
individual digits, the decimal location, and the sign) were represented in
a "more structured" way (i.e., an array). Is that much a fair assessment?

If that's the case, could you expand on the specific manipulations
themselves? Preferably something more explicit and scoped than linking out
to one of these external references, if possible.
