          Issue ID: 17113
           Summary: cent/ucent lack basic support
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: deadalnix gmail.com

Long story short, they are badly needed. I've been doing work related to crypto
these days, and lacking cent/ucent makes everything 10 time worse.

I assume DMD already has integral operation legalization for 64 => 32 for
plateforms without 64 bits support, so that can be hijacked to legalize 128 =>
64.

At this point, I don't care if the codegen is crappy. I don't care if VRP and
std.math to not work with it. I don't care if half of phobos don't recognize
it. I just need to have a 128 bits integers. The last issue about this I could
find was from 2012 and it seems like there is no progress made.

Please, please, please !
