For now, only output is neccessary. And since we are going to redesign
the system, it is not a high priority to allow installed functions
to take an int. Especially since there is no 't_INT to C int' conversions
routines in GP. Even, I would not encourage the use of 'int' for whatever
in PARI. Currently functions with return type 'int' are comparaison functions
which only return either -1, 0 or 1.
