Great colin so we should work together (even if I have to finish other 
I think that the first step would be to have a declarative model for 
Squeak covering ClassVariable, PoolVariable, Global in particular.

  You should then look at Ginsu because this was the idea. For the 
runtime, joseph was using a nice trick that if an entity Smalltalk was 
there the messages where forwarded directly. This way the tools were 
based on the ginsu model but the run-time was not modified.
