Ok, so it seems clear we can't fix the accuracy issue fast, and should
not wait for it for 0.8.
Now the question is whether the accuracy problem is severe enough so that
we should disable the single-precision transforms in this release.
If we are unsure that it's not severe, I think we should disable the
support for single precision FFT in the 0.8.x branch, and remove the
corresponding mention from the release notes.
