A simple and unifying approach to subjective objects. R B Smith, D Ungar,Theory and Practice of Object Systems, Citeseer, 1996.

for those who have access. As its not my paper I'll let Dave say if a version is freely available.

As far as I know the system was only ever a demo. I doubt it could be implemented efficiently on the current vm without baking the lookup algorythm changes into it though I'd love to be proved wrong.

I would recommend interested people also look into Brian Rice's Slate language and the Classbox stuff in Smalltalk as well.
