The comment in the #'newFrom:' methods reads as follows: "Answer an  
instance of me containing the same elements as aCollection." What the  
above does is take a float, add it to an Array, then create a  
FloatArray and add to it each element in the Array.

If you want just the float number, you already have it:

0.938611557944869 class == Float
