For example, I fixed a bug where some geoms could push themselves 
straight through a box with a bit of persistence, because of a denormal 
division issue. My fix was rejected because it hard-coded epsilons 
(based on dSINGLE or dDOUBLE) instead of using some systemwide define 
(which nobody could ever actually show existed, because I needed "square 
root of denormal epsilon").
