Does Squeak include a generic node class?

Sort of like a template was the first thought that came to my mind. I
agree that this is could be a better approach. Do you think that what
you are describing is similar to "Aspect Oriented Programming" as Joe
Davison has suggested or is it somehow significantly different? I took
a look at the web site and at first glance it seems similar.

Analagous to a Template, but in my case perhaps more analogous to
a macro expansion. However, neither of these would cover variations
in implementation, but would take care of such things as variable and
Variations in implementation starts getting into a somewhat more involved
discussion. Essentially, it is a recognition that there are usually several
ways to achieve a certain goal, hence various means of resolving the conflicts
of a Pattern ( in the Alexandrian sense ). So a means of accomodating and
managing those variations is needed, along with a means of composing patterns
from other patterns, optimising the shape of a pattern to best fit a particular
problem but according to the rules governing a pattern,etc.
Which is to say that at this point it is for me the beginnings of some notion
about a way of doing some things... It gets involved. To describe it better,
I'd have to build it. This is only one of many things I would like to do,
but never seem to get around to doing them. Rather aggrevating, actually.
