Ooh, the return type is an integer that is always representable as a FPT (same as the arguments) and in addition, having FPT allows infinity and NaN if one (both) of the args are infinite or NaN. Nifty...
I do hope all these get documented somehow besides the "number of gaps" basic return value. Thanks!

Would adding an underscore be nicer:
FPT float_distance(FPT lhs, FPT rhs);
And to be clear, this (and the other next functions) *only* apply to floating-point types. (not integer, not decimal, not interval,
or any other type)?
next_distance() is another possible that does not explicitly limit to floating point.
