non-integer numbers support in afm files

are there plans to support non-integers in afm files (i.e. numbers
like 123.456)?  fontinst produces low level errors when such numbers
occur in some places, so afms need to be preprocessed (and a bit of
quality is lost by this).

Also, is the following syntax of FontBBox in afm file correct
(according to specs):

FontBBox -15, -199, 1157, 913

Fontinst produced errors on such afm files. Or should (must?) it be

FontBBox -15 -199 1157 913
