I've taught Smalltalk to a lot of people. Based on that experience, I
think you are heading in the wrong direction. You probably shouldn't
be talking about modules, but about classes. You shouldn't think
about a module that runs other modules. Further, classes are objects,
so you usually don't pass names of classes around, but the classes
Is this your first Smalltalk system?
