    LANG-1018: Fix precision loss on NumberUtils.createNumber(String)

    **Warning: This patch will break backwards compatibility.**
    
    This patch is designed to fix the loss of precision when using NumberUtils.createNumber(String).
However, the fix is not 100% backwards compatible with the currently released commons-lang
3.4. To fix the loss of precision, values that were previously returning Floats are now returning
Doubles. Some explicit casts may break as a result.
    
    ```java
    // Works in 3.4, but causes ClassCastException in patch.
    Float f = (Float) NumberUtils.createNumber("-160952.54");
    System.out.println(f); // prints "-160952.55"
    
    // Works with patch.
    Double d = (Double) NumberUtils.createNumber("-160952.54");
    System.out.println(d); // prints "-160952.54"
    ```

> With commons-lang 3.2.2:
> NumberUtils.createNumber("-160952.54");
> The result is "-160952.55".
> Should not be based on the length of the decimal point number to judge whether the floating
point number.
> Using the method (createFloat(str)) of dealing with the valid number greater than seven
Numbers will cause accuracy loss.
> The source code is as follows:
> {code:java}
> try {
>             if(numDecimals <= 7){// If number has 7 or fewer digits past the decimal
point then make it a float
>                 final Float f = createFloat(str);
>                 if (!(f.isInfinite() || (f.floatValue() == 0.0F && !allZeros)))
{
>                     return f;
>                 }
>             }
>         } catch (final NumberFormatException nfe) { // NOPMD
>             // ignore the bad number
>         }
>         try {
>             if(numDecimals <= 16){// If number has between 8 and 16 digits past the
decimal point then make it a double
>                 final Double d = createDouble(str);
>                 if (!(d.isInfinite() || (d.doubleValue() == 0.0D && !allZeros)))
{
>                     return d;
>                 }
>             }
>         } catch (final NumberFormatException nfe) { // NOPMD
>             // ignore the bad number
>         }
