> Stéphane, would you mind expanding a bit on what mistake CLOS didn't make?

create-instance invokes initialize-instance in CLOS for every class.

In Smalltalk (not squeak or pharo), new does not invoke initialize. Now CLOS arrived 10 years after Smalltalk and we fixed
that problem in our lovely environment.
