i find 'nan()' member function confusing
i would have made 'nan()' a static function returning NaN and renamed
the former to 'is_nan()'
similarly 'odd()' and 'even()' could be 'is_odd()' and 'is_even()' but
these are less confusing to me
what others think?

by the way does 'token' produced by 'block_exceptions()' presumes the
previous state? i.e. does its destructor restore the state its
constructor switched from?

and are we going to continue in this thread?

if you notice a grammar mistake or weird phrasing in my message
please point it out
