I was thinking of even less than that. Just define a few flow control 
things and get everything out of the objects. I expect it would look 
either like lisp or smalltalk.

There would only be one built in datatype, the message, and all the 
objects would chuck messages around. Thus the language as such would 
have a very limited syntax.

load Object.class;
load Stream.class;

x = new Object;
s = new Stream;

s.print x.to_string;

So we have declare variables, load classes and pass messages.
