Um, I know how to do float division.  I'd like the / operator itself to
exhibit float division behavior.  I'm well aware of how to do float
division between two numbers; third parties are entering in expressions
to be evaluated and would prefer that the / operator exhibits float
division behavior rather than integer division.
