I know, what I tought was of using that on the internal representation... but I
see its not possible. About complex numbers, there error checking against that
before the place where the hypotetical floor would be called.

Has cln-1.1 been already released? Well, if it is two or three weeks (or more,
if we consider Murhpy's Law), then I probably can wait.
