[Vm-dev] Recreating live coding in CPython 3.5

Hey there as it says in the title I am trying to recreat live coding Pharo
chracteristics in Python . One of the issues I have is live replacing of a
method to an existing instance.

I know how to do this in Python but that shown me I would benefit greatily
from a more deeper understanding of Pharo live coding internals than I have
at the moment which is only at the user level. This will help me avoid
common pitfalls in a field that I am not experienced with.

Have you guys written any paper , article or blog post in this area,
explaining the internals of the VM to that regard ?

I am also interested in time machine livde coding, meaning live coding that
does not keeps you in the present but also can send you back in the past
restoring the live state of old object instances in a specific time moment.

Generally any guidance on the art of implementing live coding will be
greatly appreciated.

I don't care how this can be done in Python because I have already
recreated a very basic live coding enviroment in Python and there is a lot
of documentation about Python overall what I am interested only is the
Smalltalk way of doing live coding but from the perspective of the
implementors not the mere users.
