Besides that, I think that #printShowingDecimalPlaces: needs a serius fix.
Evaluating for this float:
302.46 printShowingDecimalPlaces: 2
Result displaying it is '302.45'
We calculate quite well by using fractions and scaled decimals but we also
need good text representations of those fine values.
Any known patch for that?
