Good news. In that case there is no bag in implementation of misconception.

But misconception still exist.

As a result of one of basic operator are still wrong.

[-inf, inf] IS NOT [-inf, -1] U [1, inf]

It should throw exception if it cannot provide correct result (intermediate situation, not applicable to usual float calculation, result is not single interval, but only single result can be returned by /= operator). We just finished a cyrcle and now we exactly where we were at very beggining :))

May be we could find a way to contact to class maintainers?
