i think it does similar things than the current
implementation but uses float arithmetics instead
of ints.

i hadn't considered using floats, it may be faster
i don't know, you have to benchmark etc.

i can add this to my math todo items, but i can't
promise to look into it soon unless there is a
good reason to.
