Signs of life

It is showing signs of life. I have gotten to the bootstrap step where we replace the bootstrap version of MAKE-INSTANCE with the generic version. On the next call to MAKE-INSTANCE a lot of stuff happens that eventually lands us in the yet-to-be-implemented primary method of MAKE-INSTANCE.

At this point, I need to clean up a few of the kludges and finish implementing a few of the important functions (for example, my wimpy sort routine only works on lists of a single element so far).
