Description:


An abstract superclass for all unboxed float classes.
In contrast to normal arrays (which store pointers to their elements),
unboxedFloatArrays store the values in a dense & compact way. 
Since the representation fits corresponding underlying C-language representations,
these are also useful to pass bulk data to c primitive code.

Class protocol:

queries
o  isAbstract
Return if this class is an abstract class.
True is returned for UnboxedFloatArray here; false for subclasses.
Abstract subclasses must redefine this again.


Instance protocol:

queries
o  defaultElement

o  isValidElement: anObject
return true, if I can hold this kind of object

testing
o  isFloatArray
return true if the receiver has float elements.
These are Float-, Double and HalfFloat arrays
