This looks like a giant step backwards. Some of us are interested in
writing efficient code. Even if some machines only have one
representation I find it hard to believe that there are not a subset
which are more efficient. Are you seriously suggesting that LISP
should counternance numbers not being arbitary precision?
Anyway KCL has fixnum, bignum and short fixnum.
