Constant names



SRFI 77 has least-fixnum and greatest-fixnum. Common Lisp has MOST-POSITIVE-FIXNUM and MOST-NEGATIVE-FIXNUM. Is there any reason to prefer the SRFI 77 names?

Common Lisp also has MOST-POSITIVE-x-FLOAT, LEAST-POSITIVE-x-FLOAT, LEAST-POSITIVE-NORMALIZED-x-FLOAT, MOST-NEGATIVE-x-FLOAT, LEAST-NEGATIVE-x-FLOAT, and LEAST-NEGATIVE-NORMALIZED-x-FLOAT for x in SHORT, SINGLE, DOUBLE, and LONG. Would SRFI 77 benefit from having similar versions for flonums?

Regards,

Alan
