NUMER / DENOM is to be computed in infinite precision. In
other words, we should always truncate the quotient towards
zero, never -infinity. Machine division and remainer may
work either way when one or both of NUMER or DENOM is
negative. If only one is negative and QUOT has been
truncated towards -infinity, REM will have the same sign as
DENOM and the opposite sign of NUMER; if both are negative
and QUOT has been truncated towards -infinity, REM will be
positive (will have the opposite sign of NUMER). These are
considered `wrong'. If both are NUM and DENOM are positive,
RESULT will always be positive. This all boils down to: if
NUMER >= 0, but REM < 0, we got the wrong answer. In that
case, to get the right answer, add 1 to QUOT and subtract
DENOM from REM. */
