The manual does not mention that (define-record name
...) from defrec-package defines a variable type/name
bound to the type of the record.

    In fact, the define-record form has lots of new,
    exciting features, that need to be documented.
    The source code is quite well commented, so
    all features are described there.

    May I add, parenthetically, that this damned
    sourceforge bugtracking system wraps lines
    longer than about eight chars. Urgh.

    There's no exported operation you can perform on the
    type/name
    value, so what's the point of telling people it's there?

    You need the name of the type for define-record-discloser
    and define-record-resumer.
