I was thinking exactly the same thing. But maybe maperror:quiet should
still warn about this condition, mentioned in the docs:
(2) apply <f>
to [<expr_1>, <expr_2>, ...] if the <expr_i> are not all the same
type of object.

I think we should. We should also fix the docs:
-- Option variable: float2bf
Default value: `false'
When `float2bf' is `false', a warning message is printed when a
floating point number is converted into a bigfloat number (since
this may lead to loss of precision).
I don't think there is any loss of precision now. And precision is
probably the wrong word. It should probably accuracy.
If there are no objections, I'll try to implement these.
