Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think doubles allow some of 
the cool bit-related stuff, like shl/shr and mod.  (Ooh, asm...)

I know that the modulus isn't allowed, at least, not without some special 
modification or other, but shl/shr shouldn't be allowed either 'cause it 
might screw over the decimal place.
