        Why should there still  be three initialization protocls: "shared-
        initialize", "initialize-instance",  and "reinitialize-instance"?

        [Summary: replace reinitialize-instance with a keyword argument to
        initialize-instance --Moon]

    Two reasons come immediately to mind: shared-initialize is also used when a
    class is redefined or change-class is called; . . . 

It seemed obvious to me that the "internal" callers from change-class etc. 
could just as easily use a simpilifed definition of initialize-instance with 
keyword argument.
