Re: Miscellaneous decisions taken or to be taken

     10 June 87 There was no response when Sonya mailed out a writeup for how
     the standard type classes are organized.  Does that mean we agreed on that?
I agree with it.

     p1-12 Should defclass be allowed to change the metaclass of an existing
     class? Under what conditions should a subclass of standard-class have
     the same properties wrt instance updating as standard class?
       Kempf says you shouldn't be allowed to change the metaclass, I think
       because existing interfaces might not be transformable.
       Gregor says the metaclass protocol includes a predicate function
       that controls this.

I agree with Gregor.
