See Urs Hölzle's thesis, Adaptive optimization for Self: Reconciling High Performance with Exploratory Programming.

See also the Animporhic Smalltalk (also called Strongtalk) web site:

Note that Strongtalk included an strong static type system for Smalltalk that was also optional and incremental. But again, the original developers will tell you that the (very excellent) performance they were able to achieve was due to the Self-style dynamic optimization via type feedback--ie. Urs's thesis as referenced above.
