I'm quite in love with Smalltalk, for several reasons. One is everything 
being an object, as you point out, but another one is how easy it makes 
debugging.

Now just do the following in a workspace:

Editor specialShiftCmdKeys at: 8 put: 30

Then delete the workspace and give the image to a experienced squeaker 
of your liking, familiar with Editor and its usages, and ask him to 
debug the thing. How long will it take, and how easy will it be ?

(don't forget to ask how wonderful was the experience)
