I disagree that that is more useful. While I almost always use
doubles, there are lots of reasons to use singles. Just because I like
doubles doesn't mean we're right and everyone else is wrong.

If you must choose a value, it should be 'single-float, because that
is the CL default.

I also tend to agree with Robert. asdf is a make, not a lint+make.
