yes, anthing is possible. However, before I go to the effort on implementing something myself, I was hoping to find some OSS solution. It struck me as such a common issue there must be some solution out there already...

Padé approximation:

Note that you'll have to do a lot of testing on the
signs of x and y, and handle atan z for |z|>1 as
pi/2 - atan(1/z). All these steps might take longer
than the standard atan2 function.

I guess it doesn't speed up anything to do it in
fixed point.
