You can, but:
a) It's probably slower, if you care about that;
b) In some locales, it'll be a comma instead of a period;
c) It may not have the negative-number behavior that you want; and
d) It'll have weird effects if the number is in exponential notation
(in particular, an uninitialized float will be converted into a very
reasonable-looking integer).
