Some time ago I restored some runtime-class functionality: enough to
create a class, implement methods in Lisp, and add annotations. I
didn't announce it publicly because it's still missing important
features, like defining fields, constructors, call superclass
methods... if anyone is interested in contributing, we can discuss the
ideas I have. I intend to add what's missing eventually, but don't
expect it too soon.

The API is not the same, though I used the old one as inspiration. The
implementation is written in pure ABCL with no external dependencies,
using Erik's great class file writer (plus an addition of mine to
handle annotations).
