	I'm trying to fill in the gaps in my Smalltalk knowledge and so am going  
through some of the free books (thanks, Steph!). Right now I'm looking at  
"Smalltalk By Example" where it talks about the absence of private  
messages. (I've run up against methods that were private I've needed so

	Anyway, it suggests using a my- prefix for privates and an fr- for  
friends (or "protected", I guess).
