Creating or Using another decNumber Library in C++

Description

I think we need to have a support for big number in icu4c that more easier and bug free than decNumber library

NOTE
decNumber library cons:

  1. Hard to use

  2. Hard to manage memory leakages

  3. Gives errors in multiplying fractional numbers (sometimes)

  4. Gives error in dividing fractional numbers (sometimes)

We need to investigate what the issues above are

I think what might make sense is to somewhat productize decNumber:

  • split out decNumber into a separate repo

    • include any customization to make it easier to incorporate into ICU

  • contact GCC folks - (just a mirror) about coordinating

  • give decNumber a real ‘upstream’ as its own PR
