Would anybody mind if we dropped nan(void) and nanf(void) in favor of
the ISO C99-compliant functions that take a string as an argument?
Should we try to retain backward-compatibility by means of macro
magic, or just bite the bullet and replace the old, non-conforming
functions and prototypes with the now-Standard ones?

If nobody objects, I'll implement the Standard-compliant functions in
the next few days.
