I just tried and it works. I also tried to break it when creating
subclasses, but I was not successful.
Let's assume a class A, for which:
" do nothing"
I was wondering why I can still create a subclass of A.
Actually, when a subclass is created, Behavior>>new is called on the
class Metaclass. Then, this instance of Metaclass is initialized with
a superclass and an empty dictionary
