Several competing object-oriented extensions to Lisp were
around at the time, such as Flavors, in use by Symbolics;
Common Objects, developed by Hewlett-Packard; and
CommonLoops in use by Xerox.
LMI submitted the specification as a candidate for an
object-oriented standard for Common Lisp, but it was
defeated in favour of CLOS.
