Ok, I've committed a patch after running the testsuite.
I've used coerce-float-fun rather that $float to do the
conversion, because one application of $float does not
reliably convert Maxima expressions to floats, even where
I've noticed that there are several other spots where
bfloat or float are used to convert Maxima expressions.
What is needed, though, is a function that coerces the
input expression to the appropriate type. A generalisation
of coerce-float-fun, if you will.
