# RuleFit treating integers as categorical

## Description

Rule looks like this:
(AirTime in {104.0, 105.0, 110.0, 111.0, 112.0, 113.0, 114.0, 120.0, 121.0, 124.0, 125.0, 126.0, 127.0, 128.0, 130.0, 131.0, 132.0, 133.0, 136.0, 138.0, 139.0, 14.0, 140.0, 142.0, 146.0, 147.0, 148.0, 15.0, 150.0, 151.0

even though AirTime is an integer column.

Using allyears2k data for this.

It also seems like the rules may be overfitting to categoricals. It would be nice to have the option to turn on one hot encoding for this. This would also help simplify the rules.
