If mixing floats and symbols is forbidden, then it really should be  
forbidden.  For example, the object shouldn't create if there are  
mixed float and symbol arguments.  Currently, it works sometimes,  
plus there are no warnings or errors issued.



If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess  
himself of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
