I'm sorry, but it seems to me that the conclusion of the discussion in
2008 is that the algorithm should simply use the system's
binary-to-decimal routine, and if the result is like 123.456, round it
to 15 digits after the 0, check if the result evaluates to the original
value, and if so, return the rounded result. This would satisfy most
people, and has no need for complex rounding algorithms. Am I mistaken?

If I implement this, will anybody be interested?
