I don't mind.  Rewrites welcome!

Actually, the location stuff was the primary reason I started using
EIEIO.  In SLIME we have quite a zoo of location variants (not based on
EIEIO), e.g. file+byteoffset, file+charoffsets, search-strings, and
something that we call "source-paths".  A source-path describes a path
in the SEXP tree; sounds weird but works surprisingly well for Lisp

Just want to say that locations should be very flexible.
