Ah, yes, Squeak! I remember that, and your "Quoth", the text-adventure
livecoding system. Could I encourage you by saying I'm still very interested
in that?

No, that situation has remained basically the same. I agree with your
perspective here; Whatever we decide to do (if anything) should make musical
sense. The current temporary implementation of unchangeable public classes
isn't very very powerful compared to some other languages -and that's a
issue- but it also isn't very conductive to live performance and
improvisation which I feel is another issue and one that should ideally be
addressed by a solution to all of this.
