 In the context of Cocoa Bindings, Fixnum should "magically" convert to
 NSNumber much as String becomes NSString. Example:

 irb(main):001:0> i = 123.to_i
 => 123
 irb(main):002:0> i.class
 => Fixnum
 irb(main):003:0> n = NSNumber.numberWithInt(i)
 => 123
 irb(main):004:0> n.class
 => Fixnum

 See project: http://github.com/sxross/MacRuby-Array-Cocoa-Array-Binding/

 for a more concrete example of why this is important.
