I don't recall that this change has been agreed upon. I
understood this as just an idea, posted for discussion.
Am I missing something from the last messages?
Otherwise I would like to ask this admittedly anarchical group,
to define *how* anarchical it is planning to be in the future.

You have been pondering about intobject in another mail to pypy-dev
as well. I would like to remind you that this was implemented
by me on the first sprint, as one of the very first, really complete
implementations of anything not faked. It is therefore in the
style of that time, which has changed in the between, of course.
Most probably, you are unaware of this, or you would surely have
asked me, directly.
On your questions concerning restricted integers:
and the chapter there named "Example: Integer Types",
which I also wrote on that sprint.
If you need any information in extent of this, please let me know.
Maybe there are some bigger omissions.
