some weeks ago I did read about "Prioritized Parents" "Parents are
Shared Parts of Objects: Inheritance and Encapsulation in SELF".
Some unsuccessfull tryouts and some searching in the archive of this

But... in the handbook (Self Handbook Documentation, Release 2 for Self
4.4) in chapter 8.6 Lookup errors I found the following statement:
"The lookup found two matching system slots which means the message is
ambiguous. The error message also says where the matching slots were
found. Ambiguities can often be resolved by changing parent priorities."

did I misunderstand something and the statement means something different?
Is it possible to change paent priorities, ad if so: How is it done?
