I'm afraid so.  As far as I know the only way to fix this is to add a
hard dependency on numbers to fmt.  This may not be desirable depending
on what you're using fmt for.

This is a result of the second class treatment that extended numbers get,
and will be fixed in CHICKEN 5, due to integration of the full numeric
tower into core.
