    BTW: Is there a more or less `final' document for CLOS, especially one containing the
    infamous ``Inner chapters''?  Where can I get it (FTP?)

ARISIA.XEROX.COM:/pcl/doc/ contains the TeX source for Chapters 1 and 2
of the CLOS specification.

"Inner chapters"?  There are three chapters: Chapter 1 is a general
description of CLOS, Chapter 2 is a dictionary of CLOS functions and
variables, and Chapter 3 is documentation of the meta-object protocol.
I suspect you are referring to chapter 3.  The meta-object protocol is
still under revision, and is not likely to be included in the first
version of the ANSI standard.

For the latest version of Chapter 3, I suggest you contact your X3J13
representative (I know NIST has one, but I don't remember his name).  A
version was distributed at one of the recent meetings.
