Programmer-defined data types, version 2

   For aesthetic reasons I would prefer to see
       (MAKE-RECORD-TYPE type-name . field-names)
   rather than
       (MAKE-RECORD-TYPE type-name field-names)
   as the for for MAKE-RECORD-TYPE.

   How do others feel?

I prefer having a single argument which is a list.  Not only does this
reduce the number of characters that must be typed, but it simplifies
abstraction on the `field-names' argument, and leaves the argument
list open for adding arguments in the future.
