Interesting, what's the smallest Self could be squeezed into and still 
be useful?
Would a 100K version be possible than ran as fast as other scripting 
languages like Python? The Ruby scripting language has become very 
popular as a web scripting language despite the fact that it uses a 
Smalltalk like syntax. Maybe Self could become a popular scripting 
language if it was less monolithic.
