List of generic functions

The following is a list of the generic functions (and argument names)
that are in the metaobject protocol or are part of the extended
programming interface.  I don't know how to distinguish these two.  Some
of them have been been described in the first two chapters of the CLOS

A description of what these generic functions do is coming later today.
But it is much longer.

The notation below uses (setf <generic-fn-name>) to indicate the setf
generic function that corresponds to <generic-fn-name>.  The argument
shown for the  setf function is only the new-value argument.  The names
of the arguments are an attempt to give some clue as to the types of the
