Indeed. We ought to extract all the NaN and Inf stuff into a separate file.

  What are needed for XPath are portable implementations of:
    - isnan()
    - isinf()
    - initialization routine to get a +INF a -INF and a NAN

And make the lib consistently use these - everywhere where the use is

all this according to the IEEE 754 standard and the available implementation
for the C double type.
