[squeak-dev] Looking for scope in superclass environment

Currently, bindingOf:environment: will search for scope in superclass
This is an easy way to import all Smalltalk globals, since you'll end up
looking in Object/ProtoObject environment.

But is it the way it should be?
Couldn't we inherit from a class without importing all the environment in
which it was declared?

Couldn't we instead explicitily ask to import: #SomeClass or all of
Smalltalk globals?
(Beware, someone must ask Smalltalk to export: #SomeClass, or exportSelf
for such import to be possible)
