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.
