Hi, SM!

Opinion #1: I doubt that anyone who is serious about their billing & 
revenue (e.g. your nitpicky carrier) would leave to randomness the 
answer to the most basic question of: "does our platform correctly bill 
each call?".  No disrespect here, just maybe highlighting the fact that 
your platform could benefit from a bit more testing.

Opinion #2: we could definitely change the default of the 
second-accurate precision to be _greedy_ instead of _generous_. I bet 
most people (myself included) would be more happy with a ceil() [1] 
behavior instead of a trunc() [2] one.  That is: round _upwards_, not 
_downwards_.  More opinions would be useful here!

Best regards,

[1]: man ceil
[2]: man trunc
