This 'distance' thing really is the way to look at it.

Since n+0.500 is right in the middle between 'n' and 'n+1', the error
introduced is equal (but of opposite sign), whether you go down to 'n' or up
to 'n+1'. So, to have a statistically average error of zero you just go up
half the time and down half the time (ie: round to even).
