May I suggest that 0.1 and -0.1 are included in the suite of numbers??
Over the years, they have been involved in a lot of rounding issues (granted; 
because people errenously use floats and doubles for monetary and other 
fixed-point decimal numbers) and I would be happy if the expected behaviour 
is "documented" in tests.
