Sure, but in XEmacs there's only one such (with three parts: one for
subrs, one for lambda lists, and one for byte-code objects).  Random
third-party stuff won't work, but it doesn't have to; random third
parties can and should use the defined API.  That's hardly a
controversial concept.

Evidently this won't work in Emacs out of the box, but surely it's
worth moving in that direction, and having third parties with "better
ideas" for basic introspection contribute them to core rather than
implement them in complex and fragile packages like eieio?
