Hi Eliot,

yes, I would also prefer inheritance (e.g. CharacterArray between ArrayedCollection and String/Text) over MNU.

Hi, there.

Can we find better ways for supporting String protocols in Text objects? Maybe through DNU?

Look at VisualWorks.  I can’t remember how it’s solved there but it’s way better than Squeak.  I *think* it introduces an abstract class CharacterArray above String & Text and moves as much protocol there as possible.  MNU would be a horrible approach IMO.
