Clojure 1.3-master currently changes the way numbers work, so these sentences from 4.1.2 will not necessarily be true in 1.3: "Clojure is able to detect when numerical overflows will occur and will promote the value to a representation that can accommodate.", and "This promotion within Clojure is automatic as the primary focus is first correctness of numerical values, then on raw speed."

Maybe a footnote should be added, or is it outside of the scope of The Joy of Clojure?
