The plan looks fine to me, with Danny's corrections.

``Remember that find-class must take an optional environment argument.
(defun find-class (name &optional no-error environment) ...)''
Yep, that's my plan message.
??. The copy of your plan message I received didn't say anything about
a third argument.
BTW I disagree with Danny's tacit suggestion here to change
&optional (error-p t) to &optional (no-error nil). Our experience
is that people get very confused if the error-p arguments aren't
all the same sense.
``What about the suggestion about get-method ==> find-method ?''
The criticism that there might be cases when you have the method in
hand that you want to flush from a generic function is one to consider.
Until that's thought through I'm waiting on this proposed change.
I don't think I understand this comment. If what you mean is that
(setf (find-method ...) nil) can't replace everything that remove-method
can do, I agree but I thought the proposal was to have both of them.
