Re: CHANGE-CLASS not implemented?

No, I didn't implement CHANGE-CLASS. It is hardly ever used, and it violates
a fundamental property of Lisp: an object's type must be constant as time
(Would you be happy if a string could be "changed" to become a number?)

If you really need CHANGE-CLASS, you may use PCL. It's bigger and slower
than CLISP's native CLOS, but it has CHANGE-CLASS.
