If I understand correctly, this does not solve the problem either. Let's assume
you have two values: x and y, where x = y + eps (eps being the user-defined
margin of error). One comparison of x and y would indicate their equality (the
difference is not greater than eps), while another one might not if x got
truncated in the meantime (and y didn't).

If you mean built-in FP support -- not at the moment and not by myself.
