alternatively it was suggested that a hacky temporary solution is to
add 0.000001 (or something like it) to values, to make them not be
automatically converted to int.

ultimately i think a new message for the sendOSC object should be
implemented, called "sendtyped", that includes a typestring for
expected arguments.
