Personally I am unsure about the value of floats, particluarly so long as they would have to be boxed (i.e. not be immediates).

I won't stop anyone else from implementing floats, but as of now I am unlikely to do it .

However I see this as another good reason for going 64-bit, where immediate floats would be feasible.
