Forgive me.  I would rewrite the structure,

   switch x:
      case GT_1:
          __atan__Gt_1__(x)
      case LT_1:
         __atan__Lt_1__(x)
      case IS_1:
         a = gpi/4
      case IS_n1:
         a = -gpi/4
      default:
         __atan__(x)

 or somesuch...   way better...  yes, there are some issues, but all workable with some effort
