What do you think about using the platform signbit and copysign if
available (in TR1, C99, MSVC, ...)? There is a chance that the compiler
optimizes the builtins better than expressions only using arithmetic
primitives. I realize that testing the availability of copysign or
copysign_ is probably difficult to do in the headers only, but for a
subset of platforms it should be feasible.
