Instead of (@class ns-mutable-array), you can just write ns:ns-mutable-
(let* ((my-array (#/arrayWithCapacity: ns:ns-mutable-array 10)))
This needs to be fixed, obviously, but the @class thing is sort of
obsolete usage, so nobody's really taken a look. I will see about
updating the example as soon as I can.
