Is the following behavior:

>>> from scipy.constants.constants import K2C
>>> K2C(-40)
-313.14999999999998

a bug or a feature?

(I know I've read about sub-absolute-zero temperature physics, e.g.,
http://cryo.gsfc.nasa.gov/introduction/neg_Kelvin.html, but, quoting that
site: "Physicists have defined a negative absolute temperature, but it's a
bit flakey...")
