FWIW, I'm with Doug -- I don't like using a different name when there
are slots that should be not be visible for constructors, common cases
that I can think of are cache slots, and constructors that need to do
some extra work for initialization.  If I need to provide the raw
constructor I do the same make-foo* thing (I consider "*" as similar
to ML's "'", so I don't mind overloading its meaning).

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
