Integer division in python pre-3.0 is annoying in that integer division returns the floor integer, not a float. For example 1/2 = 0
The way around that is to cast one integer to a float via float() or appending .0 i.e. 1.0/2 = 0.5
That's a bit of a pain, and CPython offers from __futures__ import division, but IronPython doesn't have that. Is there any other nicer way to get integer division less kludgy? Will python 3.0 syle division be supported in the future.
