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.
