Rémi raised some questions about our story for int vs. Integer vs. legacy uses of 'new Integer'—how many implementation classes are there? (should we use species?); what does reflection look like? We agreed it still needs some polishing.

Dan says it looks good, matches previous discussions and what he expected.

He'll raise this in another list at the implementation level.

There is an open issue here. I'll reply to the email.
