We are now starting the normal discussion that tcl'ers have about OO in 
the core, and thus just whipping up old dirt. For people like me who has 
invested a lot of time to learn a language that I use to solve everyday 
problems, it would be nice if I could continue to use that same language 
to do more advanced stuff. Loading packages is a work-around in my eyes, 
and I am actually following your advice of looking at a different 
language, that's why I am here in the first place. There is no need to 
wear rubber boots at a party if you can wear sneakers.
