I agitated for something along these lines some time ago. To be honest
I can never remember the object syntax and I much prefer scheme/dict
style dispatch to (send ...) I also think such an OO system has the
nice property of using the module system as a module system rather
than using class for said purpose.  Eli knocked out a little OO system
along these lines and I then dropped the ball.
