    Your issue status for this one says
      Synopsis: add REAL = (OR RATIONAL FLOAT) & range
      Version 2, 08-Jan-89
      Comment: lengthy dissent; discussion? coercion for comparitor?
      Status: need new version
    but I think this version is ready to vote up-or-down.  Note that
    there are two proposals; the REALP predicate function has been
    separated out from the REAL data type.

We should change "current practice" to note that TI Lisp includes both
the REAL type and REALP predicate.
