Good point, seeing only the code that is the result of execution, very cool.
 BTW, how did you ever solve your issue about methods implemented in superclasses..
 i.e., in the master image I have MyDomainClass>>#name, but Object>>#name has already been faulted down, so I'm not getting the correct implementation because DNU was not invoked..

    I think the most important benefit is making the system easier to
understand. With that, one can more effectively and pleasantly compose
and decompose systems.
