O.K. I looked at how Python computed modulo and implemented the same
thing for both umath (the remainder function) and scalarmath.
The result is a significant speed up for modulo...yeah...
I also placed in hooks so you can replace the scalarmath (for int,
float, and complex) with the Python version of math (this works because
the int, float, and complex scalars are sub-classes of the corresponding
import numpy.core.scalarmath as ncs
# Replace "scalarmath" with standard Python arithmetic.
ncs.use_pythonmath(<int | float | complex>)
# Replace "scalarmath" with actual scalarmath code.
ncs.use_scalarmath(<int | float | complex>)
This can test the speed of the implementations.
