DOH!  I had just been looking for round, but Ithought I had checked for
ceil and floor as wel, but I guess not. sorry for the stupid question.

I can point out that none of these is in the doc.

Paul, is there any way any of us can contribute to the doc??

It seems to act like one:
>>> floor([3.3,3.5,3.6])
array([ 3.,  3.,  3.])

probably because it is composed of them.

It does seem to match Python's native round, which makes me wonder why
it can't be called "round", since it will behave the same for regulat
python number types. NOt a big deal, of course.

-thanks, Chris
