I think so, even though Guido made it look asymetric in the first
paragraph. I can easily imagine that I would want a formula like
(n-1)//k to give the same numerical value regardless of whether n
enters as 20 or 20.0 -- the same as (n-1)*k does. Why should one work
polymorphically and the other not?
