A few suggestions after a brief look:

1. no more CamelCase. I know this is an early draft, but that's not how the
standard library looks. It should be fixed before any more work gets done to
it (easier to catch it early)
2. A few years back, the numerics SG was looking at a class for rational
numbers. I'm not sure what the status of it is, but we should dig it up to see
if that can be used instead of a new class Fraction.
3. class Bank and class Casino: these, by their names alone, sound like they
would be way too problem-specific to be useful in a standard library. Even a
standard library for low latency and finance.
