Regardless of bitwise operators, I would vote strongly in favour
of an integer divide operator, to go along with 5.1's remainder (%)
operator. At the risk of alienating C++ programmers, I'd suggest
that integer divide be spelled "//". It's precise definition
would be:  a // b ==>  (a - a%b) / b

Lispers would ask for floor, ceiling, truncate, and round as well. Funny how no-one ever wants round-away-from 0, could be called "inflate" perhaps?
