Yes, you are right, my solution fails when you start with an integer.
In answering this question I was thinking back to a way of rounding by
adding .5 then trunicating.
But, if MC/Rev rounded properly, it would work for your example, i.e.
4.5 should round to 4
however it would still fail for odd numbers, i. e.
5.5 should round to 6
