 The logistic distribution is implemented in terms of the `std::exp`
 and the `std::log` functions, so its accuracy is related to the
 accurate implementations of those functions on a given platform.
-While calculating the quantile and the inverse quantile, some
-non-zero position values might cause catastrophic cancellation errors.
-In such cases, only a low /absolute error/ can be guarenteed.
