Correct rounding is difficult. If a value falls exactly between the
two candidates, it should choose the candidate which is _even_.
I always thought than even given that 5 is equal distance from either 0
or 10, that it was conventional to round up. Not create some
complication even/odd thing which would certainly be annoying say in the
middle of some measure theory. ;)
An obvious place to have an option for either way.
