They shouldn't be, if they're asking for an integer specifically.
That's what happens now in Perl 5...
If you have a rational number and need to turn it into an integer,
best be explicit about how you want the conversion done. I'd almost
be tempted to have no default coercion there, but that'd break too
much ported code.
