Hi, yes I did take a brief look at rscheme but its oop documentation 
was so sparse i couldnt tell if the object system was reasonable or 
not.  i didn't consider its restriction of method dispatching on only 
one argument "reasonable" but in fairness it did seem to have some 
add-on that allowed multi dispatch.  At any rate I decided to make 
gauche and stklos the  first effort because they are really pretty 
close to guile and so i think i understand what to do.

CM doesnt really need all that much from an object system -- and can be 
made even less needy -- but at some point i simply throw up my hands.

cm's scheduler is consless, so if you preallocate things, stick to 
fixnums and/or use resources you can keep user garbage down.
