Hmm, I see... while REMAINDER and MOD are different in general, they
agree on what is zero.  But in the presence of IEEE floating-point
arithmetic, perhaps (MOD -6.0 3.0) => 0.0 and (REMAINDER -6.0 3.0) => -0.0,
so I think I just barely wiggle out of that one.  It's a pretty
flimsy argument.
(Yes, I was very tired.)
