RE: Accessing class slots

Consider the class:

(defclass c1 () ((s1 :allocation :class :initform "Foo")))

Then you can use (slot-value (class-prototype (find-class 'c1)) 's1) to get
your desired value.  This will cause the class to be finalized in order to
create the class prototype.

This si not really a MCL question, but I know this list has many CLOS
In C++, there is a syntax for accessing static members (= class slots) without
using an object of the class, with class_name::slot_name. From my knowledge of
CLOS, you must use SLOT-VALUE or an accessor function on an instance to access
a class slot. Have I missed something, or is there really no direct access to
class slots? If so, why?
