It is really the C legacy. Typical of C is having a lot of implicit  
conversion, also when loosing data.

In Haskell, or at least running interactively in Hugs, "/" on integers  
are treated as floats. I figure if one enforces the numbers to be Int  
(int) or Integer (multiprecision integer), then the result must be  
Rational - multiprecision rational numbers.

Yes, I was thinking about cents :-), that is the trivial interval.
