I've been wondering about this myself. Everywhere I look, I see 'super
new initialize', while I think that 'self basicNew initialize' really is
a cleaner way. In fact, I think 

	^self basicNew initialize

should be in the image. The initialize methods themselves usually know
best whether a 'super initialize' needs to be done. I use 'self basicNew
initialize' exclusively and I'm quite happy with it, but the fact that I
see so much code with 'super new initialize' makes me wonder - is there
something wrong with 'self basicNew initialize'?
