self in slot initializations

	    Does anyone know why flavor slot initialization forms are not
    executed in an environment in which self is bound to the object being
    initialized in New Flavors (7.2)?  This fact has greatly complicated the
    way I construct composite objects where a composite object creates its
    components and the components need to know who their parent is,
    especially when the purpose is to allow for a whole family of composite
    objects with interchangable component flavors.

Isn't this what the MAKE-INSTANCE method is for?
