I agree with you, Andrew, but the problem is when the output is not a
real number.

Suppose that you have to decide which of the project that are planning
a big company will be done in the next year. Little difference in
computation may lead to a solutions that are far enough one from the
other providing very different sets of projects to be done. Is this
admissible? Is this desirable?

So on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday that you work on your laptop you
said that "Project A" should be done, but on Tuesday, Thursday, that
your work on your supercomputer cluster you said that "Project A", of
course, should no be done.

I'm not speaking if that is possible or not, I known that in the
general case it is not, but for me it is a desirable behavior, and I
think that the software should be as close to that behavior as
