and not for some positive values either,

$x := 100000000000000000000000000000001,
$y := 1000000000000000000000000000000001
(floor($y div $x), $y idiv $x)

not for any values at all if you are a strict typing sort of person, as
floor returns an xs:decimal (as integer div integer is decimal) and idiv
returns an integer.

(oops sorry about the xquery:-)
