My main attack for a while will we be in geting the numeric precision
solid.  Calculating things to about 11 significant decimal digits is
harder than it looks.  A 64 bit long is only about 10 decimal digits.

For example, my longitude is 121.314064921W, but a long can only
hold 2147483647.

By which you no doubt meant "A 32 bit long is only about 10 decimal digits"
