  I wouldn't call it a propert to avoid confusion with PicoLisp `prop'erties.

  I couldn't find `allbase'.

  I had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebraic_data_type][Algebraic
in mind, just like fractions.

    (= (Float B S E)
       (* S (** B E)) )

  ``(314 E -2)'' looks like
And wouldn't cause an error in PicoLisp.

  Current implementation of PicoLisp numbers is also a linked list:
[path "@doc64/structures"].  Too bad they can not be manipulated like any other
list.  Base is (** 2 64).

  [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quote_notation][Quote notation]]: If we allow
circular reference in the `Num' structure it will result in a subset of
rational numbers.  Arithmetic Shift, `AS', will give the rest.
