[Openmcl-devel] double floats

If I try to use the number 1.5e50 (e.g. just by typing it at the lisp
prompt and hitting return) I get and exponent overflow error while
executing CCL::FLOAT-AND-SCALE-AND-ROUND. I thought it might be a bug
since it works in MCL. I see that what I need to do here for OpenMCL
is explicitly say it is a double float with 1.5d50 (which returns
1.5d50 in OpenMCL and 1.5e50 in MCL). I also find it strange that in
OpenMCL (= 1.5e10 1.5d10) is NIL but T in MCL.
