I think a cast should be added because plus-chucking a float to a string
already forms a implicit cast so a explicit one should be fine as well, I
feel. That would be coherent with ChucK being meant to be very readable; a
explicit cast may well be a part of the coder trying to express his
intentions clearly.

Remarkably the Std does supply a tool to go from a string to a number, but
not the other way around.

I say we overload "$" as the most simple and coherent solution.
