<language> A Lisp variant for the LISP Machine, with
object-oriented features, developed by D. Weinreb and D.A. Moon
<email@example.com> in 1980. "Classes" were called
Flavors in the language.
Though the Flavors design was superseded (notably by the Common LISP CLOS facility), the term "flavor" persisted as a general
synonym for "class".
