A long term average is not exact by nature, the precision is good 
enough for our need, and the speed of this is kinda irrelevant 
considering the frequency. The previous code had implementation bugs.

There is no need it's just easier to read and maintain that way. Feel 
free to re-implement it with integers if you want.
