Comment(by simonpj):

 Johan, can you drive this ticket to conclusion?

 Is the Right Thing to implement a `word2Double#` primitive? And
 `word2Float#` I guess.  What exactly does it do?  Just treat the word as a
 unsigned integer, thus behaving just like `int2Double#` (at least as I
 understand it)?

 If so why not do precisely that, rather than use workarounds? Presuambly
 the code generators would need to be educated.
