Description Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2017-04-10 18:38:46 UTC
The "volume" property, which is exposed as a double, it stored secretly as a float, loosing precision along the way.

    volume: Store volume as a double for consistency with the property type
    And the potential increased precision, which shouldn't matter much here.
