Interesting ideas!
Yes, I had wanted to mention the copying prototypes more-and-more
point--I think it might well happen.

It is interesting that you are teaching both Smalltalk & Self--
we are very interested in finding out if Self might be a good
language to introduce OO concepts.

The multiuser stuff is great--Randy & I have been thinking thoughts
in this direction for years.

When we first started on Self, I toyed with the "point" gives you
a new copy each time idea, but was scared off from it.

Anyway, got to go now, but what a neat discussion!
