Looks like it is trying to compute the signature of the applicable method
to tell you what keywords are allowed. What I do not understand is why the
package matters. Might be that if it cannot find the class then it simply
resorts to T and ECL has to compute a list with all the possible
MAKE-INSTANCE for all classes... Would be worth further investigating.
