Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

I agree with Tim. Drop the zero-info glosses. For real_quick_ratio(),
    "Return an upper bound on ratio() even more quickly."
should be sufficient (assuming that it *is* always quicker.

Just curious, The descriptions say ratio() <= quick_ratio() and ratio() <= very_quick_ratio. is it also guaranteed that quick_ratio() <= real_quick_ratio()? Or might one 'luck out' with a better answer from the faster method? (I can imagine either being true.)
