I believe everything is a double. In 2014 it was said that a massive
rewrite would be needed to change this architecture. OTOH, now that
complex numbers are also supported, maybe that isn't true anymore, I
Let's see what the developers say.

As for the RAM requirement, I don't think that is currently possible
(see above - because everything is a double). But for storing the data
marking variables as discrete may help somewhat.
Ah, good idea marking a variable as discrete. I'll check this tomorrow!
