My memory was wrong about the bytecodes being listed in Urs' thesis, but
page 51 of Craig's is where I got my list from.

He did have

4: DIRECTEE <parent name index>

On the other hand, bytecode 12 in Self 4.1.2 and later is certainly
"delegatee" (which is why I had both names in my email).

Craig also lists bytecode 0 as "INDEX-EXTENSION" which I shortened to
"extension" in my list, while in Self 4.1.2 it is just called "index".
So I implied a rename but it wasn't really.
