Well, these changes went a long way toward getting rid of that.  If you
wanted, you could rip the direct instVar access out of
Object>>valueForKey: and Object>>takeValue:forKey:, sprinkle in a few
accessors where they're missing, and voila: pillage free.  I assume what
you most loathe is the direct inst var access, (or, rather the
message send of #instVarNamed:), not the 'foo.bar' notation?
