Does Squeak include a generic node class?

Actually, there are no sinks (Objects that don't point to anything)
in the Smalltalk object graph...  all objects have a reference to their
class, hidden though it is.  Even immediates (SmallIntegers) have an
encoding of bits that points to their class (effectively).
