I hadn't thought of this. Early on, `math/array' had an FlVector-backed 
array, but I tossed it when timing tests showed that it wasn't any 
faster than the current (Strict-Array Float). But your #4 sounds like it 
might be a good reason to have something like it.

FWIW, a (Vectorof Integer) that contains nothing but Fixnums is flat.

Awesome! I'm really interested to know what your experience with it will be.

I'm afraid there's no documentation, yet. :/ On the plus side, the API 
should be pretty stable now.
