Interesting observation in Squeak 3.4gammaOne
Class addInstVarName: 'myAdditionalInstVar'.
"works; tested this moring; takes 10..20 minutes; all 1811 classes
present are recompiled."
Metaclass addInstVarName: 'myAdditionalInstVar'.
"works; instant execution - only Metaclass is recompiled"
Class superclass ClassDescription
Metaclass superclass ClassDescription
So as a temporary workaround for meta programming one might add an
instance variable to Class and Metaclass individually.
For these reason I see no obstacle in releasing 3.4 as well. Why not for
example at the end of this week?
