Surely the Adobe fellows have something to say about this :). Flash
tweening and 3D Flash libraries like Papervision3D make extensive use of
floating point math. In an environment where tweaks like multiplying
fixed points instead of dividing yields substantial performance
increases, the "currency calculations" you speak of fade into
insignificance.
