i did not expect the tempo definition in Lilypond to be required to be an

For instance

    \tempo 4 = 82.3

produces the error.

"syntax error, unexpected REAL"

Since in midi tempo definitions are of type float I wonder if there is a
reason for Lilypond to restrict the tempo to integers. If there is no
reason, I would like to suggest to make the tempo command more general and
accept reals.

thank you
many greetings,
