[Ecls-list] Leak in specializers (AMOP problem, not ECL's)

The AMOP mandates that every generic function and method be registered with
the specializers they use. However, as far as I know it does not mandate
any way to "delete" function objects, so that the following sequence leaves
a trail of non-existent function objects in a class:

* Define the class FOO
* Define a method for function FAA specialized on FOO

At the end class FOO still keeps a list of functions and methods that were
registered with it.
