AOL this.

Integer to floating point conversion (and the opposite) is highly
optimizable from the simple for()-loop with a C cast, and should
really be part of a separate plugin.  That is, unless you are
implementing both floating-point and integer algorithms.  (But in
that case, you don't need to convert.)
