Which is why keeping it in the code when _most_ systems use
LSB could leave some mis-uses (storing a negative int there)
undetected until someone hits a border case on some non-LSB
system... which will be very hard to debug.

Better be proactive and get rid of those XFASTINT and XSETFASTINT
things all-together (or at least make them equal to XINT and XSETINT
on all systems)!
