I think that the missing piece (having the compiler generate the new
bytecodes) isn't hard to do. But you would have to come up with a new
syntax to express delegation and making it different from regular
message passing would give it a significantly different feel from Self.
I don't see anyway around this short of a total retrofit of Squeak,
which isn't your objective, right?
One suggestion is to add a new keyword "resend" in the spirit of "self"
and "super". Of course, that might be confusing if a message being
resent is found in the object itself.
