Hi all,

I am currently finishing up my master thesis. In it, I'd like to

Smalltalk-80 (the idea of implementing a dynamic language in its own
subset, then statically analyzing and compiling the interpreter)

extensions to run unchanged.

I obviously don't want you to do my job for me, but I searched a lot
on this topic already, and any hint where to look further would be
