[self-interest] Another question about Self grammar

Ok, time for another simple question about Self grammar
that was probably already asked/answered.

In a Self expression, the use of the parentheses specifies an object,
or a higher precedence expression. However, as mentioned earlier, most
people just parse these as objects. Later in the compiler phase, 
it can be determined that these parenthesized expressions have no
temporaries and are just a single expression.


x + ( (bag getItemNamed: 'dog') squared)

This whole line is a single expression.

Is what I am saying correct?
