I didn't mean to imply that you actually need to implement a respondsToX method for every possible method X; I was just trying to simplify the exposition (and apparently failing). I wouldn't even know how to formally define what "a generic respondsTo: method" and "doesn't work in with ST" mean, let alone prove a claim involving them. Regardless, I don't see any obvious obstacle in implementing respondsToX (for all X at once) on top of a statically typed encoding of object orientation. -- Edit this signature at http://www.digitas.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/ken/sig http://www.thismodernworld.com/ "vi has two modes: one where it beeps and one where it doesn't"
