That's also a current difference between [expr] and [#expr], though it 
will probably not stay completely like that, because GF makes a big point 
of having several different number types in grids. So, whenever I write 
the other half of [#expr] (add grid processing), it will probably support 
the 6 number types of grids, instead of the 2 of jMax/Max or the 1 of Pd.
Until then, [#expr] only does floats.

I think that [#expr] will not have ints outside of grids, but I have not 
really thought about it yet.
