Why not to use #& and #| for and & or operations?
Your source code:
^self class new: value + (self negated and: aProbablity negated) value
Can be compiled successfully in other Smalltalk environments
(like Smalltalk Express and Visual Smalltalk).
I think that Squeak parser must not try to optimize #and:
if the argument is not a block node.

Oh, boy... probabilities look so ugly without them... anyway, I chose
andWith:, orWith: and so. Do you know of any nicer selectors?
