I agree with Marc-Andre, people doing FP-heavy math in Python use Numpy (possibly with Numba, Cython or any other additional library). Micro-optimizing floating-point operations in the eval loop makes little sense IMO.

The point of optimizing integers is that they are used for many purposes, not only "math" (e.g. indexing).
