report from Kauai meeting

	The next version of the proposal probably won't require readtables to
	be compilable, but there is still debate about interpreted functions.

Well, we did squeak in an amendment to the EQUAL-STRUCTURE fiasco that
said EQUALP will descend hash-tables using the "rule of Rose".  So why
don't we let them be compilable now?

Conversely, defstruct instances got retracted to comparison by EQ, 
simply because of the lack of a generic EQUAL and EQUALP proposal.
Similarly, non-built-in defstruct instances will probably have to be 
compiled out via the mechanisms of the LOAD-OBJECTS proposal, since their 
semantics are now becoming thoroughly intermixed with clos instances
