Sorry to disagree, but the "grouping" in this papers is very different
from what we are talking about here ( I think :-). Ole Agesen was just
trying to recreate at the Self level the class-like information that
exists in the VM and compiler ( called maps ). He wouldn't need to
do this if Self's reflection was less limited.
