	We might use the names FLOOR and CEILING a la Knuth to refer
to the functions which consistently round towards -inf and +inf
(FLOOR is our current FIX), and TRUNC to round towards zero, and ROUND
to round to the nearest integer (using IEEE idea for 1/2's going to
the nearest even number).
	I'm against making gratuitous changes to the current function
definitions; there's too much code that would have to be changed.  When
we need new functionality, add a new function!
