Thanks Ville.

There is still at least one case that abcl is not happy with. A keyword 
argument with a default value.

CL-USER(7): (defclass c1() (x))
CL-USER(8): (defmethod initialize-instance :after ((c c1) &key (x2 0)) 
(setf (slot-value c 'x) x2))
CL-USER(9): (make-instance 'c1)
#<C1 {39CEFFB8}>
CL-USER(10): (make-instance 'c1 :x2 11)
Debugger invoked on condition of type TYPE-ERROR:
  (X2 0) cannot be coerced to a string.
  0: TOP-LEVEL Return to top level.
