I think some C code does assume fixnum ranges for these variables, and would have to be inspected. Presumably we'd go to either intmax_t range or Emacs integers (fixnums or bignums), and that might need to be thought through in a case-by-case basis. In the meantime XFIXNUMFWD is probably a good name since that's effectively what the code does now.
