Subject Re: Difference between currency fieldType and float fieldType

Yeah, you'll have to do the conversion yourself (or something internal,
like the currencyField).

Think about it as datetimes. You store everything in utc (cents), but
display to each user in it's own timezone (different currency, or just from
cents to full dollars).
