This is strictly a curiosity question.  I am aware the R doesn't possess a
float data type.  I also don't mean to request that such functionality be
implemented as I'm sure it would require a large amount of work with
potential back compatibility conflicts.  But I wanted to know why R has
never had a float data type available?
