 * It's reasonable to ask why we have this header at all.  Don't isnan,
 * copysign, the built-in comparison operators, and the like solve these
 * problems?  Unfortunately, they don't.  We've found that various compilers
 * (MSVC, MSVC when compiling with PGO, and GCC on OS X, at least) miscompile
 * the standard methods in various situations, so we can't use them.  Some of
 * these compilers even have problems compiling seemingly reasonable bitwise
 * algorithms!  But with some care we've found algorithms that seem to not
 * trigger those compiler bugs.
 *
 * For the aforementioned reasons, be very wary of making changes to any of
 * these algorithms.  If you must make changes, keep a careful eye out for
 * compiler bustage, particularly PGO-specific bustage.

/*
 * These implementations all assume |double| is a 64-bit double format number
 * type, compatible with the IEEE-754 standard.  C/C++ don't require this to be
 * the case.  But we required this in implementations of these algorithms that
 * preceded this header, so we shouldn't break anything if we continue doing so.
