[PD-dev] how math objects respond to a bang

So I am just going thru the x_arithmetic.c math classes, and I found 
that while most of them do respond to a bang, about 1/3 of them have no 
method for bang.  I would like to add a bang method to all these.  I 
can't see any problem with doing this, anyone else?  The new bang 
methods would act just like the other math object bang methods: the 
would output the last result.

These objects have a bang method:

+ - * / pow max min == != > < >= <= & && | || << >> % mod div

These do not:

clip sin cos tan atan atan2 sqrt log exp abs

Here's a patch to test this:
