Programmer-defined data types
I support Pavel's proposal for records.
I would prefer that each abstraction-breaking procedure is identified as
such in its description. I prefer the term "field" to "slot."
-- Should there be a RECORD-COPIER procedure? Some folks would like to
have one for performance and convenience..
I can think of many operations generic to records. I don't think
copying deserves to be a special case.
