Updated patch:
- Fix NaN packing behaviour.
- Expand documentation note on the half-precision format, with links to the wikipedia pages for IEEE 754 and for half-precision. (No direct link to IEEE 754 itself, since it isn't publicly available.)
- Use unpack_halffloat consistently; add pack_halffloat helper function.

If there's no further feedback, I'll apply this in the next day or two.
