How can I add the negative divisors?

The answer to the answer as a comment this time, sample code:

```
sage: a = ZZ(2019)
sage: adiv = a.divisors()
sage: adiv
[1, 3, 673, 2019]
sage: anegdiv = [ -d for d in adiv ]
sage: anegdiv
[-1, -3, -673, -2019]
sage: adiv + anegdiv
[1, 3, 673, 2019, -1, -3, -673, -2019]
sage: anegdiv + adiv
[-1, -3, -673, -2019, 1, 3, 673, 2019]
sage: [ d*sig for d in a.divisors() for sig in [-1,1] ]
[-1, 1, -3, 3, -673, 673, -2019, 2019]
sage: [ d*sig for sig in [-1,1] for d in a.divisors() ]
[-1, -3, -673, -2019, 1, 3, 673, 2019]
```

Of course, the structural code is not optimal, and the optimal code is not beautiful.

Given a Python/Sage objects, you can get available methods, with tab-completion, so if you do:

```
sage: p = 13
sage: a = p-1
sage: a.<TAB>
```

you will see all the methods that can be applied to `a`

, in particular:

```
sage: a.divisors()
[1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12]
```
