It would be easy, just changing cmpffi.lsp to add them as C representations
of certain lisp types, and then adding inline forms for certain operations,
such as addition, subtraction etc, in cmpnum.lsp, plus some functions in the
core to convert to/from them.
But I am not sure what those types are and how well would they integrate
with their C counterparts. Are they efficient? What is their use?
Furthermore, are they not supported by GCC already via long long or long
