I don't which amazes me more: the effort you must have put
in to get this code working, or that, as the primary
developer, you didn't simply add 32-bit arithmetic
primitives to MzScheme!
Since I only wanted 32-bit arithmetic for a toy program
I'll consider my options. If I can be bothered I'll
implement those primitives!
