Jonathan Rees on OO

I've been talking to a number of smart hackers about the
the question of what to do about object-oriented programming
in Arc. Jonathan Rees just sent me a such an excellent 
dissection of the whole problem that (with his permission)
I put it online:


Jonathan designed both T and (with Richard Kelsey) Scheme 48,
and he has thought a lot about these issues.  Language
designers who have worried about the question will likely
find this clarifies matters.  (I recommend it esp. to Scott 
McKay, who seems to think it is a waste of time to define a
new Lisp that isn't Dylan.)
