    \brief @c float_sort with casting to the appropriate size.

    \param[in] first Iterator pointer to first element.
    \param[in] last Iterator pointing to one beyond the end of data.

Some performance plots of runtime vs. n and log(range) are provided:\n

   \par A simple example of sorting some floating-point is:
   \code
     vector<float> vec;
     vec.push_back(1.0);
     vec.push_back(2.3);
     vec.push_back(1.3);
     spreadsort(vec.begin(), vec.end());
   \endcode
   \par The sorted vector contains ascending values "1.0 1.3 2.3".
