Re: Inheritance of Slots

I read the current document last night and was appalled at the
complexity of the rules that were used to explain the inheritance of the
characterisics of slot-descriptions.   I also realized that accessors
and readers MUST be inherited.  A new method need not be built for every
class if the implementation guarantees that the method inherited still
works.  But whenever there is a change of the :allocation
characteristic, every accessor and reader in the inheritance chain must
have a new method created for it.
