Does anybody have a good/clear explanation for how double rounding occurs 
in the case of squaring-of/multiplication-by small numbers and how the 
action taken in the code addresses that? Not sure if it needs to mention


because certainly the float and double versions of those routines are
written in terms of float_t and double_t respectively.

Thanks - Damian
