It is probably the best possible solution if you use (various) ints and
reals simultaneously. But sometimes the class(es) (and defaulting) bites
you (if you are a beginner). In 90 percent of the cases I would be happy
with Int only (and would be unhappy without overloading for the
remaining 10 percent).
