At the considerablel risk of sounding one note -

Look, for example, at O'Reilly's Java in a NutShell.  Java's OO is
introduced via geometric objects.  A drawable circle, inheriting from
an abstract circle, if I remember correctly.

The beauty being you then see the object you created,
as an object as you created it, etc and etc.

I might have mentioned (ha-ha) that I worked up something
called PyGeo that tried to build on this approach.

Why doesn't the concept work for you?
