[chuck-users] ChucK Language Features

Hello all,

I have started to build a compositional framework in ChucK and have come
across a few language features that seem to be unsupported:

- For the types of inheritance structures I am thinking about, it would be
incredibly useful if I was able to call a parent class's method from within
a child class using something like the `super` keyword.
- It would also be really awesome if I could pass a "type" as a parameter.
- Not crucial at all, but it would be convenient if subclassing a `UGen`
allowed you to use the chuck operator on instances of your class just like
other ugens, i.e. `MyPiano p => dac`.

I am interested to know if there has been work on these features since the
release I am running, and if so where I can go about acquiring a more
recent build.  If there has not been any development on these features, I
would be interested in getting to know the problems a bit more and
determining if I can contribute to their development.  Are any of these
issues inherently difficult due to an aspect of ChucK's implementation?
 Let me know if I can clarify at all.
