I guess the functions could something like:

template <class R, class T>
R round_to(const T&);

template <class R, class T>
R trunc_to(const T&);

which would provide generic versions of iround/itrunc (although R need not
be an integer type, as long as there's a static_cast from T to R).

I'm not particularly sold on those names though, I guess
"round_cast/trunc_cast" would be an alternative.
