Another reason to leave frexp() untouched  is that it is tightly 
coupled to ldexp() as its inverse, for a lossless roundtrip:

  assert ldexp(*frexp(pi)) == pi

This relationship is bound to get mucked-up or confused if frexp starts 
accepting large integers that are no exactly representable as floats 
(i.e. 2**100+1).
