you see the not this argument because the first should be xzk

what is not clear to me is:
	when I code oo I get messages and each method is a potential hook for extension

	when I code component (because GL is that a component model)
	the ports are the extension points.

How such extension points works in presence of subclassing.
Then how the methods (because GL is coding in OO) which are the de facto hooks interact with the ports one.

You know that I always say that. I even ask veronica to participate to the glamour chapter because I want more. But this is on another level.
and I still have my doubts about glamour :)
I think that building models and code that does not rely on glamour is the best way to make sure that it can work in both world.

> But, I thought the whole idea of one Pharo image was to get some decent tools in there for the benefit of the infrastructural work as well. Am I wrong?
