Sorry if this is not related - but what are you going to do
with the demangling of floating point values?  I sensed a strong
opposition against the IEEE decoding - so I removed my IEEE print
routine again :/.

But if your demangler will demangle everything as IEEE regardless
then I suppose I might as well do the same.
