That's a very nice idea but it is obviously very dangerous in ST, given that
it's dynamically typed. You'd be completely relying on the heuristics you
gather over some time.
Personally, I don't think it should be done in a completelly automated way,
some old smalltalkers should always look at what is going to be cut off from
the image before doing so.
