Would be nice. But i don't know, if it's correct:
Are the float types symmetric?
I.e. is -f a float if f is one? I assume not. Some IEEE expert has to
give some words of wisdom here.
I think fabs has two advantages:
it should take care of these issues and it gets inlined in gcc on some
OSes (x86 for example).
The early bird gets the worm. If you want something else for
breakfast, get up later.
