No. Nothing in the manual, though I was looking for declarations and
found none. (Did I overlook them?)

My comments are mostly triggered by the on-going discussion on
FP-efficiency on info-dylan. Also, as you may be aware I ran
benchmarks comparing Fortran and Lisp FP-efficiency, and, though I
received a number of helpful and interesting comments, so far no-one
has come up with a version of my code that is comparable to Fortran 
w.r. to efficiency. 

I am looking forward to run my benchmarks in Dylan asap.
