Well, it's a fair bit of work to add while keeping back compat
(feature negotiation has to be added). If someone did that work, I
don't think float is a big problem to add, but it's not as simple as
just adding float everywhere double now appears in the code, because
of the compat issue. Feature negotiation needs to be added first to
the auth protocol.
Given that it's a fair bit of work to do feature negotiation, I'm not
sure float is worth it or that we have any volunteers that would be up
for adding it.
