I don't like your single-handed decision, referring to wiz or kristaps doesn't make honour to any of them (did Thomas present any arguments in public at all?). Essentially, you're using force of first-hand attack to resolve dispute in your favour. All three of your arguments in commit log are simply wrong, I pointed you to that but you ignored it. Please, back it out and present what you refer to as "Fundamental Theory of Algebra" on tech-userlevel. I don't believe it exists, and if you want it to be taken as argument, present overview of text books where it is discussed rather than given as a matter of fact. We diverge in approaches to libm validation and verification already, and I don't want to trash numeric stuff just because of your attitude to act ignoring anyone else. -- HE CE3OH...
