Re: Shared/local;class/instance

    Therefore, I simply believe that :shared is a better name than
    :class in terms of being intuitive.
The issue is what the pair of names should be; instance/class or
local/shared.   I have argued on the basis of possible extensions that
we should use :instance and :class.  Another argument is that instance
and class are used in Smalltalk with the same meanings.  Hence people
who take a course in object oriented programming using Smalltalk will
not have to learn yet another isomorphic terminology.
