I'm very new to smalltalk and squeak.  I'm having trouble  
understanding where/how is the "new" method is defined.

I was messing around with morphs; I tried CurveMorph new.  Nothing  
happened so I started walking back through the parents of CurveMorph  
looking for the method "new".  I got all the way to the top  
(ProtoObject) and to my bewilderment... no "new".   I used the method  
finder and found the "new" method in the Behavoir class.   How are  
these related?  It seems like something with a class being a real  
object and descending from behavior, but I can't seem to wrap my mind  
around that.  Any help and insights would be appreciated.
