Silent underflow is fine with me; it's the norm in most all float
implementations and won't surprise anyone.  For overflow I'm OK with
either returning infinity or throwing an error --- but if an error,
it should only be about inf-out-with-non-inf-in, not comparisons to any
artificial MAX/MIN values.

Anyone else have an opinion about this?
