defstruct syntax

    On page 307 defstruct syntax is defined as

    defstruct name-and-options [doc-string] {slot-description}+

    we believe it should be 

    defstruct name-and-options [doc-string] {slot-description}*

    since it is perfectly reasonable to have

    (defstruct (foo (:include bar (x 33))))
    to make foo be like bar but have a different initial value for x.

I agree.  I should have known.  "+" is almost never the right thing
compared with "*".
