Unfortunately, MAKE-LOAD-FORM-SAVING-SLOTS did not make it into
2.0b1. Also, the MAKE-LOAD-FORM that is there only supports returning
one value, e.g. it can't handle circularity.

This has been fixed for 2.0 final, but the fix was too extensive for
a patch (meaning I don't want to spend the day or three it would
take to figure out how to make it work in 2.0b1).

Take heart, 2.0 final will be out before you know it (but please don't
ask for a specific date).
