My notes from Fairfax meeting...
GLS: p14 and p34 disagree about bignums. One says that fixnum and bignums
are an exhaustive partition of the integer space, the other says they
might not be!
KMP: Moon is "neutral" on flushing bignums, but supports rest of proposal.
Not ready for vote.
Barmar: Thinks change to bignums gratuitous.
RWK: Let's just deprecate BIGNUM.
