The main design issue is that I was proposing to make it impossible to access
the internals of the numeric storage using macros. Currently some of the data
(the sign, dscale, and weight) is visible without having to call any special
numeric functions. I was proposing to use representations where those might
not be as easily accessible.
However I don't think we have any consumers of that data outside of numeric.c
anyways. Is there anything using that functionality currently? Do we mind
losing it?


The data would still be available through a function, right? If there's no-one accessing that information currently, there's no backwards-compatibility issue. I think this is a non-issue.
