Right; r.reclass just generates the table, the actuall reclass is
performed by lib/raster. If the base map is floating-point, it will be
coerced to integer using its associated quantisation rules.
Note that r.reclass doesn't pay any attention to the map's
quantisation rules (even if it did, they could be changed between the
reclass being created and being used, and the rules at the time of use
would have effect).
The buggy rounding code should probably be replaced with e.g.
*v = (CELL) floor(fv + 0.5);
*v = (CELL) ceil(fv - 0.5);
*v = (CELL) (fv > 0 ? floor(fv + 0.5) : ceil(fv - 0.5));
These differ on whether values lying exactly on a 0.5 boundary are
rounded toward positive infinity, toward negative infinity, or away
from zero respectively. The last one mimics the behaviour of C99's
