I'll play "dumb user" on this one...
Are there useful sample rates that can be expressed more accurately
with a pair of 32-bit integers than by a double?
If so, programmers who don't care about the extra accuracy could
presumably convert the ratio to a double in one line of code (at the
cost of a single division operation). That does not seem excessive,
assuming there are real-world examples where the extra accuracy
would help. Are there any?
