I think we are better off fixing them locally at the moment like your
patch does. We should consider to eliminate -0 globally for all
floating point based datatypes later. I simplified and incorporated
your change to line_interpt_line() into mine.

I am not sure about normalising -0s on point_construct(). We
currently allow points to be initialized with -0s. I think it is fair
for us to return -0 when -x and 0 are multiplied. That is the current
behavior and the behavior of the float datatypes. I adjusted the
results of the new regression tests accordingly.

Which lines do you mean exactly? I don't see any being unreachable.
