Flonums package
Flonums are a subset of the inexact real numbers provided by a Scheme implementation. In most Schemes, the flonums and the inexact reals are the same.
The procedures in this package don't have hard-coded prefixes. The intent is that they be placed in a module. Users can then import this module with their own prefix such as fl, or ƒ if their Scheme implementation supports that character, or with no prefix at all if the intent is to override the normal Scheme arithmetic routines.
Basic procedures
(flonum? obj)
Returns #t if obj is a flonum, #f otherwise.
(real->flonum x)
Returns the best flonum representation of x.
R7RS-small-compatible procedures
The following R7RS-small procedures have flonum equivalents:
= < <= > >= integer? zero? positive? negative? odd? even? finite? infinite? nan? + - * / abs numerator denominator floor ceiling truncate round log sin cos tan asin acos atan sqrt expt
TODO: need to see about integer division procedures

C99 <math.h> procedures
The following procedures are defined in terms of the functions of the <math.h> header of ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (C language). In the C signatures, the types "double" and "int" are mapped to Scheme flonums and (suitably bounded) Scheme exact integers respectively.

General remarks
In the event that these operations do not yield a real result for the given arguments, the result may be +nan.0, or may be some unspecified flonum.
Implementations that use IEEE binary floating-point arithmetic should follow the relevant standards for these procedures.
Compnum procedures from <complex.h>
A compnum is a general complex number whose real-part and imag-part are both flonums. The following procedures should be in a different module from the flonum procedures, since they will only be relevant to Schemes that support general complex numbers, and since there are conflicting names.
