In the Smalltalk world of dynamic code, I guess you are right or mostly
Mostly right because the simulated micro-world (think of geometry canvas
as DrGeo) still need to have a dedicated DSL to make simple to
instantiate a dedicated simulation from Smalltalk code only.

Indeed that is important questions: how do you keep these texts, but
also share, and even more importantly glue them together to build a
simulation out of other simulations following a recursive pattern.

It try my best to make it easy, but you already found points to improve ;-)

Self embedded documentation is something that need to be improved in Dr.
