My understanding was that only the things in CLtL2 would be documented.
Ie CLOS chapters 1 & 2, but not the meta-object protocol stuff (Chap 3), as it
has not yet been approved by X3J13. There is some crack in the Symbolics docs
about the mop stuff being undocumented, use at your own risk, etc.

clos:slot-definition-name is documented in the CLOS meta-object protocol
documentation, however. For those who don't know already, the latest draft
is available in (at least) PostScript format via anonymous FTP from
arisia.xerox.com. The draft I have is dated July 30, 1990.
