Jecel, I finally got a chance to read your RFC, and have just a few comments...
1. simpler method/block story
I don't know enough about how self currently works to properly comment. Are there any cons to this change?
2. simpler non local return
Wouldn't this require that all objects have a default slot (^)? From what I can tell an object in self does not normally contain any slots by default. Am I wrong about this?
3. simpler syntax - no literals
I really like this one - it seems like it could create a lot of currently unthought of possibilities.
4. simpler assignment story
I'm sitting on the fence with this one. No comment for now.
5. removing inheritance from the base-level
I'm not sure what you gain from this one. Personally I'd probably leave it out.
