Yes, excellent.

And then there's also stuff that's even more high level than that.

For example, when I look through the object systems of Pharo or even the 
relatively small Io, I find a mixture of things that are intended for 
widespread use and things that are intended for niche uses, for lots of 
reasons (e.g. they're experimental, or they're optimised for only 
certain cases, or they're badly optimised but get correct results in 
corner cases, or they can talk to other obsolete systems, or ...).  This 
can be shown in the internal documentation of the objects and sometime 
is (not always - grrr), but that's not where it's most useful, is it?  I 
want to know before I start exploring which objects I should consider
