floatdistance(lhs, rhs)?
And as someone noted earlier, it should be the number of gaps, or
rather: the number of times nextafter needs to be applied to lhs in
order to obtain rhs. Otherwise, the "number of representations
between lhs and rhs" is 0 in two cases, when rhs==lhs or when rhs ==
nextafter(lhs).
