Re: Common Lisp Types

From the application programmer's viewpoint, classes for some of
the types listed as not having any would make application development
using CLOS more straightforward. Consider the STREAM type. If
a STREAM class exists, and is subclass-able, then developing
a window system application which can run on a variety of displays
becomes easier, since WINDOW can be a subclass of STREAM. In
this sense, I think Gabrial's proposal is a sound one, since it
increases the integration between the CL type system and CLOS.
