+1. I almost wrote something similar. A guess might be that many uses of floats 
in Emacs come from computations with floats, not from literal numerals. E.g., 
measurements/calculations involving window pixel sizes and such.

What indications are there that many uses of floats involve round numbers? I 
guess conversion of integers would be the main source. But do we have any 
quantitative info regarding relative frequency?
