As I said in an answer to Diez B. Roggish, I had been reminded of the
behaviour, thought it odd, and looked for other implementations that
might have the behaviour via wikipedia. My intension was most
definitely NOT to say that Pythons map should do what Wikipedia says
slavishly.

Sometimes when I pick at these seeming inconsistencies I learn a lot
from the c.l.p replies. Someone elses thread on -0.0 versus +0.0
taught me some more on floating point for example.
