> Shouldn't the new function be named math.remainder_near?

Not clear. :-) I'd prefer to keep the name that's consistent with both C and IEEE 754. (We already have plenty of naming differences between Decimal and math; attempting to reconcile them is likely futile.)


IEEE 754: remainder
C99: remainder
IBM Decimal spec: remainder-near
Java: IEEEremainder
.NET: IEEERemainder
