Thanks Twan. 84 pages, wow! Will take up an evening or two.
Will get back to you.

Notice in the abstract you refer to expressing inheritance in terms of 
blocking and hiding method calls. I suppose what I had in mind was 
whether there might be some basis in certain CSP operators. Need more 
time to think about this myself, but wondered if anyone else had already 
considered it.
