Tropical numbers in these packages contains an extra field isinf. Which is not nessesary because we have Inf and -Inf for floating point numbers already, we can just use them directly. It is memory more efficient and computational cheap.

Most importantly, we are going to release a BLAS package for tropical numbers, which is two orders faster than naive Julia loops. If a tropical number is defined as a composite data structure, it is hard to utilize SIMD.
