	I think Self has never lost its capabilities for multiple inheritance.
All slots ending with a star '*' will be considered parent attributes.

	Which finally lost its position in Self was the tie-breaker rule,
proposing a smart strategy in order to choose which "inheritance path"
to follow once it is discovered that a message cannot be satisfied in a
given object.

	Salud !
