Sorry, I thought that was clear.

I never use CL myself, because I have not had time to learn it. (The
only lisp dialect I have been using - except for some small course, 5
weeks, in logic programming - is elisp.)

When trying to tweak ert.el so I could use it for tests in nXhtml I
ran across cl structures and did not understand at all how to read the
values in them. I therefore wrote some small functions to help myself
and others in this dilemma:

Those functions are all in ourcomments-util.el in nXhtml. The main
function is describe-defstruct. If I remember correctly I had to make
a minor change in cl.el too to make it all work.
