digitalmars.D - What's up with the 'cent' type?

It looks interesting... when will it be completed? 16-bytes can hold alot of
data ;) ... just think about the cryptology uses!

When it is implemented, will there be phobos functions to take many other types
(say, bytes/ubyes) and combine them into one cent?

It's just being reserved for future implementation. When that will be, I don't know. I'm sure there will be the usual library routines to support it.

I hope this would also include ASM SSE support. SSE data is all 128-bit data types.
