Self looks to me like Smalltalk done right. I grew up with prototypes
not classes, and I find Smalltalk hard going for that reason.
I just re-watched Alan Kay's famous talk "The Computer Revolution Hasn't
Happened Yet", and it sounds to me like a very good argument against
classes, although I doubt that he meant it to be!
