The Rationale for the section "Fixnums" begins:

Rationale: The operations whose names begin with fixnum implementarithmetic on a quotient ring of the integers ...

fixnum> fixnum< fixnum>= fixnum<= fixnum-positive? fixnum-negative? fixnum-max fixnum-min don't make sense. I suggest they be removed.

Brad [1] An ordered ring satisfies (1) Given a and b, precisely one of a < b, a = b, or a > b is true. (2) Given a < b and any c, a+c < b+c; and if c > 0 then a*c < b*c. (3) x < y and y < z implies x < z.
