I wish this thread could be truncated. It's got me going round and round. I'm completely floored, and will doubtless end up barking mad - you know, like a ceil.
Me too. All the arguments have been repeated over and over. It really isn't worth more energy at this point; I see a use for trunc() separate from int() and I really don't care if Raymond doesn't see it. Let's move trunc() to the math module and be done with it, leaving round() a built-in with both the one- and two-argument versions intact.
PS. There's something wrong with Raymond's mailer that creates a thread in gmail whenever he responds. I suspect it's not correctly adding an In-reply-to header. That makes the thread feel much more disconnected than most, because often the quoted text is in a different thread.
