Hi Nicolas,

I think I agree with everything you say.  I assumed (I know that might get
me in trouble) that Chuck was rounding to print or display the value.
Personally I don't see any reason to round floats (or almost anything else)
except to display them in a simpler form.  Given that, 162.89 looks better
than 162.89000000000001 and is probably what Chuck was looking for.

That's why I thought there was a problem with #roundTo: but maybe #roundTo:
has some other intent that I'm not aware of?
