Wow.  Indeed.

Smalltalk now represents all the metaprotocol about the current image.
And yet, classic "Smalltalk at: #Behavior" still works.

Nice.  Very nice.  Elegant.

All the delegation methods are a little wonky (Smalltalk at: #foo => Smalltalk
globals at: #foo), but I can live with that.

Andreas, did you just copy the entire collection protocol, or did you find
them item by item?
