Yes.  The Linux case seems to work (there are lots of little differences
in the C ABIs between Darwin/Linux), but the Darwin case is pretty
confused.

I think that it's limited to :ADDRESS -> MACPTR (which is documented)
and to :SINGLE-FLOAT -> SINGLE-FLOAT and :DOUBLE-FLOAT -> DOUBLE-FLOAT
(which aren't.)  In theory, it -might- happen on coercion to 32- or
64-bit integers, but I don't think that this happens in practice.
