+ 	creating a new BlockContext for that block. The compiler inserts into all 
+ 	methods that contain blocks the bytecodes to send the message 
+ 	blockCopy:. Do not use blockCopy: in code that you write!! Only the 
+ 	compiler can decide to send the message blockCopy:. Fail if numArgs is 
+ 	not a SmallInteger. Optional. No Lookup. See Object documentation
