re: In Symbolics' implementation notinline SLOT-VALUE
does not call SLOT-VALUE-USING-CLASS for the standard metaclass.
I thought it was supposed to, so that the user could hang hooks.
Or, are you simly referring to an optimization of the notinline
case when there are no user-defined methods?
From p.13 of the July 30, 1990 metaobject protocol specification draft:

So "the standard metaclass" implies "no user-defined methods" (except
for the bug with EQL specialized methods that Cyphers pointed out, which
I imagine is one of the banes of Gregor's existence too).
