I took a look at ieee754fpu/src/ieee754/part* and its proofs. I see what you

I think I have an idea.

The approach is to create nested for loops that will enumerate all possible
partitions of varying widths and positions. Then, check whether that partition
is "complete" (delimited by ones on each side) and "unbroken" (all zeros
inside). If so, compute the expected result, compare and assert.

It's horribly inefficient on resources (O(n^2) I think). Let's hope the proof
is not too slow.
