I aplaud this goal. However, rather than create this horrid mess of type-specific operators, I would much prefer an approach that used type declarations, perhaps:
(with-flonum (x y) (/ x y)) (with-fixnum (n m) (* n m)) Essentially, if you want to do this, follow Common Lisp.Yes, I know that if you provide Lisp-like macros and these type-specific operators, then I can implement these myself. However, my gut tells me that this sort of thing should be provided by the compiler writer.
