Indeed, none of our code should be proxy-aware. Genuinely
transparent proxies are implemented with VM support, not with
doesNotUnderstand:. The traditional way of doing them is a symptom of
the VM being hard to change. Squeak changed that, and the performance
cost is negligible.
ProtoObject may have valid uses, but I have yet to see one and
proxies isn't among them.
Hm, how do I really feel? :)
