If "man round" on a system says

     #include <math.h>
     double round(double x);
then it should have round() in math.h; otherwise it is broken: either
the manpage is wrong, or the header file is buggy. I don't think it is

We have a policy of using library features as much as possible to
promote code reuse and prevent unnecessary maintenance work. As a

I do not foresee changes in this policy until we have bigger
