[%] follows C convention. [mod] does not, mostly because [%] is often not 
what is wanted: for example, both Python and Ruby define % to be like Pd's 
[mod] and not like Pd's [%].

It would also be nice if it supported that its right-hand value is a 
float. This would be useful for normalizing angles that are in radians.
