I was just wondering about what balance between speed/accuracy the
project is aiming to hit in functions such as `hypot(double, double)'.
In particular, I was looking at a recent algorithm published at
https://arxiv.org/abs/1904.09481 which offers an accuracy/rounding
improvement over glibc's `__ieee754_hypot(double, double)' at the sake
of around a 5x performance penalty...
If anyone could shed some insight into this question, as vague or
trivial as it might be, I would be most grateful.
