ultimate -- ultimate value for an iteration

Description

ultimate(f,x) -- yields the value ultimately obtained by applying the function f to x.

Iteration ceases when an error occurs during application of the function, or the result is the same. Errors are not reported.

It's a bad idea to use this function, because unexpected errors will produce unexpected results silently.
