Re: Once again a plea for slash

I agree with Guy's suggestions for slash, except for one.

Making / the general (ie type converting) operator would
introduce *more* inconsistency.  Let's keep plus, difference,
product, and quotient as the general operators; +, -, *, /
as the fixnum choices etc.

After all, most numerical hackery involves being quite conscious
of whether you've got fixed or floating point entities on your
hands - eg zero checking.
