One of the thoughts I had in mind for the "kinds" proposal was to
support this. I was going to do the float32 object as part of it as a
demo of how it would work. So I got out the float object from Python,
figuring I would just change a few types et voila. Not. It is very hard
to understand, and I don't even understand the reasons it is hard to
understand. Perhaps a young person with a high tolerance for pain would
look at this?
