I'm not sure that we need a specific module for integer-valued maths. I
think a more important change would be to allow math functions to be

- move the current math library to a private _math library;

- add math.py, which calls "from _math import *".

FWIW, Guido rejected that idea when we added math.isclose() -- Victor had even written it up already.

Not that people never change their mind...
