And this might be a big problem.  It reminds me of languages which do a lot of 
automatic type conversion, including automatically converting strings to 
integers and the like.  The intention might be to make the programmers life 
easier but I think in the long run it makes it harder.

In my opinion, it's a good thing if a language forces the programmer to see 
different things as different things and not mix apples with pears.
