To my mind, the inaccurate result is a bug that should be fixed.

Note: (3.0a3)
>>> 10e40/10e39
10.0

The rationale for the division change is that (as far as reasonably
possible) arithmetic operations with same values should give same result
regardless of types.

I have not looked at either algorithm, but if long/long started by
finding divmod(), but added fractional value when remainer is non-zero
instead of tossing it, exact quotients would easily be exact (unless too
large).
