So is there a "standard" way to check the range of the bignum and
break it up into two long ints.  Last time I tried this, I had to go
to some trouble on the scm side, but I think that may have been
because I was tring to accomodate older guiles and the bit shifting
ops were broken.

Fixed (following the example in filesys.c/mkdir), and presuming the
SCM_SYSERROR macro and friends does what they look like they do.  Are
there any docs for these yet?
