I quote the report:
"The floating point literal f is equivalent to fromRational (n Ratio.% d), where fromRational is a
method in class Fractional and Ratio.% constructs a rational from
two integers, as defined in the Ratio library. The integers n and d are chosen so that n/d = f."
I think the way Haskell handles numeric literals is pretty nice and it's
important to understand what happens if you use them. :)
