Comment(by rgommers):

 Probably went through float to avoid the error. There's likely to be some
 software out there that writes txt/csv files as "5, 300, 1e10" for integer
 data.  I agree raising an error may be better, but that will break
 backwards compatibility (perhaps quite severely).

 +1 for raising a ValueError as discussed above for (u)int64, since that's
 already broken.
 -0.5 for changing it for all ints.
