Since I don't buy your arguments[1], I think it should NOT be an option,
but the implementation itself.

OTOH, I only talked about using a struct including the integer, not
necessarily the whole union type used by use-union-lisp-type.

We already use that kind of type in XCB[2] without any problem.

     that it does not compile anywhere and is slow to me in 2010. :)
