Maybe they are tested. It remains that three persons alone have left
all the rest in the dust, for standard compliance and quality of
implementation (which includes an excellent *diagnostics* quality -
and I restate excellent). As to the math functions I don't see the
real issue. Anyone can still claim something like 97% or 98%
conformance without implementing them; or can declare them
But I may understand your diplomacy. I'm well know for not having it.
It's my opinion that congratulations don't have much meaning if they
come from someone who never criticizes. One has to be open to both of
them, or none.
