[Q] slang

In the SqueakElib package on SM, I have code that redirects method 
lookup, if a reference is of a particular registered class (I use the 
compactClassIndex in RedirectionManager class>>enable).  This class is 
a redirector and holds a context object.  The lookup is redirected to 
the method #redirectMessage: on the context.

If you open the sar in the archive viewer, then the changeset 
vm-redirectors is what you should look at.
