[slime-devel] Inspector bug: inspecting very big integers

Given a conforming implementation, the following scenario is possible
(I think... at least, that is the case with SBCL):

1. Some integers cannot be coerced into single-float.

2. FORMAT floating-point printer ~E chooses to coerce integers into

3. FORMAT fails to coerce a given integer and chooses to error.

The SLIME Inspector uses ~E when viewing integers, and fails to
consider this scenario.

For example, try to inspect the result of evaluating (expt 2 1024).
