Stephane, your paper was fundamental in implementing SqueakElib. I
decided to intercept the message lookup, rather than the
wrapper/instrumentation approach. It turns out that a wrapper is still
needed, but the other goal is to secure these references into the vm,
and the approach taken supports that too.
