You can try, but stuff change all over the place, so if you get
rejects, you are probably better off starting clean.

Also, someone (sorry, I forgot your name) wrote me asking if

	toint("2.5")				[=> 0]

shouldn't return the same as

	toint(2.5) or toint(tofloat("2.5"))	[=> 2]

But, if so, shouldn't

	toint("#408")				[=> 0]

return the same as

	toint(#408) or toint(toobj("#408"))	[=> 408]

Same, tofloat("#408") should return 408.0, and toobj("E_INVARG")
ought to return #13.

It seems to me that changing the behaviour of the to*() functions this
drastically in order to improve transience is probably not a good idea
at this stage.
