slot-missing just work, but I don't think it gets things done right.

If we use slot-missing. We have to manage the column names manually instead of
present them in slots. We should keep the proxy object doesn't have any
slot to make slot-missing work, or your slot name may collide with SQL column
name.

Thus, we have to give up the direct way to describe the structure of SQL
database. We can't use defclass and slots definition now because we wanna use
slot-missing. If I create another type of proxy object(e.g. will log to some 
file
when accessing a slot), I have to repeat the pattern I mentioned above. It's
harmful for reusability.
