For instance, the following should be equivalent:
    (map 'list #'1+ '(1 2 3))
    (map (find-class 'list) #'1+ '(1 2 3))

Well, if completing the MOP is all you need to begin working on the 
slime interface, then I will do my homework and finish it before the end 
of the month :-P

Not, really it is not 100% complete, but the problem is that my work on 
the MOP suffers from huge gaps in which I do not do anything and forget 
what was left to be implemented. As far as I remember, all stuff 
relating slots, change and redefinition of classes, etc is finished. The 
generic function interface lacks yet an implementation of 
ARGUMENT-PRECEDENCE-ORDER. Besides, it also lacks 
COMPUTE-DISPATCH-FUNCTION because ECL only allows a single dispatch 
function which is hardcoded in the ECL core (Might change in the future).
