Help with CLOS slots

     I'd like to write a WITH-ALL-YOUR-ACCESSORS macro for those
    methods that will access most of the slots of a class, just using
    their regular names, instead of typing them all to WITH-ACCESSORS...

    I can't seem to locate a function call combination to get just the
    NAMES of the slots defined for a class - CLOS::CLASS-SLOTS gets the slot
    descriptors, but the NAME is internal to the descriptor and I haven't come
    on a convenient way to get at it.


(mapcar #'clos:slot-definition-name (clos:class-slots (clos:find-class class)))

Make sure the class definition has been loaded before you try to do
this, since the information about the slot names isn't kept in the
compilation environment.
