About stateful traits, consider what you read as an experiment.
I do not want to push that in squeak or another language. I would like
learn what is really useful and a lot more. This is why we reimplemented
from scratch streams: to see if we really needed "stateful traits" or
of it. I think that stateless traits are quite stable now stateful
traits are introducing
too much operators.... What is important to understand is that this is
because we wrote a paper that we like the results :)
