Thanks for the suggestions, guys!

But I want an integer result, and this returns a floating point.

After calling SetRoundMode(rmNearest);
I find that system.round() is still doing banker's rounding. Am I 
missing something?

I don't see this TfpuRoundingMode mentioned anywhere in the 
documentation, other than the "get" and "set" functions for the same. 
What does it effect?

Anyway I guess I am going to have to write my own round() function :P
