'... unlike Self, Caper reveals the internals of a method as *objects* down to its "bytecode"... ' [emphasis added]
I haven't used Self, but from the PRM it looks to me as though the bytecode for a Self method object is not itself an object, nor accessible through the slots of the method object. I did assume that Self's bytecode could be read using mirrors.
