Prototypes, classes, blue, pink, etc.

I would like to create an application which runs seamlessly across
multiple machines and platforms, but it's too hard because the
communication and coordination is a bitch.

Possible solution:
	Expand the "image" concept to encompass an
	entire "world".

Not having access to a Sun platform I've never run Self, but the
descriptions I've read make it sound like Self did something
like this, at least for the development "half" (the other half being
the deployment "half").

Basically I want collaboration with little pain and lots of gain.
