Description macbudo 2005-01-11 01:06:50 UTC
Using the lookup function I found that if the value I was looking for was not
present, the function would resolve to the closest match.  This produced bad
results as I was trying to add up some numbers.  If it cant find the value then
it should return nothing otherwise you will not notice and think everything is
working correctly.

to maintain compatibility we have to use it as it is now.

Nevertheless assigned to requirements for evaluation.
