Marvellous. On an FPU-equipped Mac, no performance loss. On a Mac without
one, presumably little or no performance loss compared using an A-trap to
got to SANE (and, in any case, it's got to be slow without an FPU).

On Mac usenet groups, I've asked why this isn't the standard approach on
the Mac. The answer has always been "SANE is more accurate sometimes."

Nice to know someone agrees with me that this is not a SANE answer...
