Squeak has half a dozen methods with the name  fromString:
with the exact same code and I am about to add another
for my project.  The code is:

fromString: aString

	^ self readFrom: (ReadStream on: aString)

Should not this method be in  Object  and all classes with the
exact same code remove the code and inherit this method

Volume * Density = Mass.
Volume / Density = Intelligence.
The latter equation explains the
essentially equal intelligence of men and woman
and the capabilities of some commonly used operating systems.
