Hello all,

Due to the discussion of floating-point performance on this list
initiated by Carlos Pita, I've been writing some toy benchmarks which
use the fp+, fp-, etc operators.  The situation with these operators
is a *mess*:

I have added your patch. Thanks for clearing this up.
I modified your changes to throw a type-error instead of an
arithmetic error if non-flonum arguments are passed to
fpXXX operations. Also, "flonum?" is detected by the compiler
and rewritten to a ##core#inline form (with extended bindings

I would be grateful if you could document these changes in
the wiki.
