Follow-up Comment #12, patch #9974 (project octave):

Yeah I know the Wikipedia article you refer to, it explicitly says:

_On computer systems with *low* floating-point precision ..._

(emphasis by me)
where I guess they refer to 32-bit floats ("singles").
On 64-bit HW (almost all computers these days) it is of no more relevance.
But you are right in that it's always worth a check :-)
