Ummm ... I'd like to keep compiler and sintax changes to absolute
minimal. Ideally zero like now =P and I'm very close of having a fully
object-oriented interface to objective-c.

Alternatively maybe an extra method modifier could be easier to
implement then a new dialect. One that guarantees that no hidden VTM
parameter is on the method ... but I'm almost sure there is already
some way of achieving that ...

Another idea is having a objcclass type of class, which can handle
automatically some of the work currently done on the bindings, but I'd
rather avoid that as it's hard for me to develop it.
