Method Scoping and Runtime Envinronments

It would be so nice to call a function in a piece of code and instead of 
the call travelling up the class hierarchy in search of an implementor, 
it could also travel through some other scoping hierarchy similar to 
that of Runtime Environments.

Instead of calling
self functionName
I would call
Env functionName

It would be even cooler if you could just call
and the system would search self first and then Env for an implementor.

Thoughts, comments?
