yes. They ease the burden on usage of swift.

They depart from the well-known and common floor() and ceil(), which may be confusing to some users. On balance, however, I believe these approach taken is cleaner and should be adopted.

I followed the mailing list discussion and carefully read the proposal a number of times.
