Well, you would not actually do 'Smalltalk at: #MyGreatClass' in slang, but if for some
reason you need the oop for an object in your plugin, just pass the object as a
parameter to your primitive in the plugin. Any object which you pass as a parameter
will show up in the stack (see implementers of #stackValue: and similar methods).
The thing that actually gets put on the stack just happens to be the oop for the
object. Of course, you should not actually use the oop for anything, but it maybe
it's interesting to know what one looks like.
