RE: Objects, processes, and encapsulation

   Not that it gets any truer/better by just repeating it,
   but I did sketch a scheme at CPA-2001 whereby processes
   and objects may merge. Building on that suggestion
   one could, perhaps?, reach a more wholistic approach
   than just singing on the "are not" mantra. We know
   that INT and REAL32 are not the same types, but they
   have more in common than not (well...). Within a certain
   context they have equal properties. Of course you are
   right (again) Gerald, but "process-classes" could grow
   in such a way that we wouldn't need to think about
   processes and objects as not being equal.
