MSElang has a concept of unified record, object and class constructs. There a 
record is a simplified object which never has a VMT and has no methods. An 
object has a VMT only if the attribute [virtual] is given. An object can be 
instantiated in global or stack memory or on heap if it has a constructor() 
and destructor().
A class is an object which always is instantiated on heap and which provides 
implicit dereferencing. Classes can inherit from objects.
(under construction).
