I don' t know really.  I use both.  I think if I just want some thing  
with slots I can see easily and I don't want to make it much more  
complicated than that I use a DEFSRUCT, while if I want something  
which might be more complex I use DEFCLASS.  if you get it right you  
can generally replace something defined with DEFSTRUCT by something  
defined with DEFCLASS and not know.
