    This might not be the best way to perform such a test, but we're suprised that
    it takes an order of magnitude longer to create the SETF functions.

It is bad, but given that Common Lisp doesn't provide access to the
mechanism which underlies setf it isn't at all surprising.

I will look into fixing this by defining a portable interface which PCL
can use to get at the underlying setf machinery.
