New submission from Mitchell Model <mlm at acm.org>:

In the Numeric Types documentation for 2.6, 3.0, and 3.1 trunc is 
documented as a built-in, like round, but while there is a trunc in math 
there is no built-in trunc. Read some of the debate on trunc from a year 
ago convinced me that this discrepancy is a documentation problem not a 
problem with the built-in functions.  Sorry if I'm completely off target 
here, but since I noticed I figured it was worth an issue.
