In Common Lisp there is a function for everything :-)
Actually, I recently had need for the various type? functions in
Scheme, like int?, string? etc. Right now the only way to do this
if type(obj) == type(1):
Which seems inefficient.

It would be easy to write a function like that in C. Just do a lookup,
and if an error was returned, cancel it and return 0.
