Hi Todd,

Sorry, I wasnt clear. I was wondering if it should raise a divide by zero 
exception and return an inf, as the real datatypes do, instead of an invalid 
numeric result and a nan.  As it stands now, we have to handle divide by zero 
differently for different data types, if we need to filter/replace such 
values.

Thanks,
Darren
