I think that [mod] should probably do whatever ANSI C or ISO math stuff
does, which I think it currently is doing. Most programming languages
follow these conventions, so its a good idea for Pd to as well.
But the object you propose does sound handy, so maybe it should be a
separate object, like [floatmod].
