You are looking at the _old_ manual. That section is obsolete, but I did
not have time to go through the whole manual again.

That said, ECL no longer implements unboxed functions. It was very hard to
maintained and lead to code bloat: we had to provide two functions for
every signature, one with Common Lisp objects, another one with unboxed
values. It could be reimplemented using appropriate proclamations, but the
default action was to remove it.

Outside from function arguments, the rest can be fully unboxed, as you see
in the new code body, which is also more readable.
