initialization meeting notes

There's a bunch of other stuff in the notes that didn't make it into
your message.  Perhaps I'll send a summary of that in a later message,
but the most important thing right now from my point of view was a
statement (page 4) about open-coding which I think means that the
procedural model is to be done in such a way that it does not decrease
achievable performance of creating instances; in particular, the system
is allowed to recognize that the standard methods are being called for
make-instance of a particular class and use a different implementation
that produces equivalent results.  This will have to be defined in more
precise language in the final specification, so that it is quite clear
what users can and cannot depend on.
