Signed Dot Products

The previous results might be improved by keeping track of the signs of the inner products. A large, positive inner product means that two vectors are nearly aligned. A large negative inner product means that two vectors are nearly opposite in direction. A small inner product means that two vectors are almost perpendicular (orthogonal), and the sign means that any residual projection is either aligned (positive) or opposing (negative).
