Since I am traveling in south-east asia with a laptop with a tiny screen, it might take me a bit longer to fix my bugs, but I'll do my best.

While I'm here, a quick status report about the MOP.  Much of the recent work has been driven by mop-feature-tests, Pascal Costanza's MOP test suite.  Currently, all but one of the files can be executed without uncaught errors.  The last file, all-function-tests.lisp, deals with subclassing generic functions and creating generic functions via make-instance, which is an area that still requires a fair bit of generalizing in our code.  After the test suite runs to completion, the plan is to start fixing unimplemented features and errors detected by it, and to get abcl support into closer-mop (which is just a matter of submitting a patch with some #+abcl forms in the right places).
