Hi Ian,

These are not errors.  +NAN.0 is not even not a number :)

These are only supported because 2.0.0 was released with +nan.1 parsing
as +nan.0.  It signals a deprecation warning with a note to this effect.
Guile from master should pass these particular tests.

These are errors.

This is also an error.  We should plumb through some extra arg to
mem2ureal, I guess, to check for a zero denominator.
