Yes, I already thought about that but it's quite a bit non-tranparent.  
I would prefer to tell Scheme I would like the object to be a Scheme  
single-float and make MysterX just play along.

I think I'll try the SRFI-4 idea first. If it doesn't work I'll try to  
take your idea. Is there any good documentation around about the  
internals of MzScheme, and how it works? I've only been hacking a bit  
by looking at MysterX's source code and some headers. Now I need to  
see how define-struct-defined structures are organized so I can take a  
peek at them in the C++-side of MysterX, because SRFI-4 vectors are  

Thanks for the help
