I prefer consistent names in the new version, even if they don't match the old names. I suggest C names like INTEGERP, XINTEGER, FIXNUMP, XFIXNUM, BIGNUMP, and XBIGNUM, where 'integer' is the disjoint union of 'fixnum' and 'bignum'. Although this consistency will cost us a bit in the short run (due to renaming) and even in the long run (due to 'git diff' output being longer), it's worth it to keep the code readable.
