I think that test is a bit misleading, as (< most-positive-fixnum (+
-128.0 most-positive-fixnum)) also returns true. It's not the addition
that makes the RHS greater than the LHS, it's the rounding that
happens when it's converted to a float. (This is probably obvious to
most people, but it surprised me).
