How are these any different?  As far as I know, they should do the
same thing -- execute the function without any arguments.

Apparently the intent was to allow flops (0) to reset the count to
zero, but any value of N seems to work (even negative!).

Flops is just an M-file.  Put one that does what you want somewhere in
your LOADPATH ahead of the default version.

But in the interest of compatibility in the extreme, I will modify the
default version to accept a single argument as well.
