Doesn't the VM already send #value?  Or else how would references that
were Undeclared at compile time be resolved at runtime?  AFAIK, the
methods have references to VariableBindings and send #value whenever
they're accessed.  All you need to do is get a different class of
VariableBinding into the Smalltalk dictionary.
