No, it's an int type.  Floating point has nothing to do with the money
type, either in the old 32 bit version or the proposed 64 bit version.
It does display in a DECIMAL format but just because there is a decimal
point in the output does not make it floating point.  All internal
calculations are done as integer arithmetic.
