Yes, but you might optimistically expect that in the event of a mismatch,
something would complain and you would get an 'invalid operation'
in the event of expecting FP hardware when there was none,
and a correct (but slow) answer in the event of software FP when
you actually had some hardware.

Giving an incorrect answer without an indication seems bad.

I guess you could run a test first, ASSERT(log(4.0) != 4.0)).
(OK so I know that you shouldn't compare floats for equality
but you get the picture !)
