Create a special kind of integer and rational to handle exponential (scientific notation) numbers. This should help the case when someone does 5e999999999999 or something equally cute. Right now, we make a gigantic BigInteger, but it'd be better to store it as the integer pair "5" and "999999999999" and do math as independently as possible.
