I just got a copy of their document (thanks to Harvey Alcabes for having
it sent to me). I haven't been through it in detail yet, but flipping
through, I'd say it looks more like Scheme with a subset of CLOS. As I
understand it, the intent behind the language is to provide a _small_
object-oriented dynamic language. Apple is encouraging folks to comment
on their spec, which they seem to consider to be a draft. Given this
understanding of their intent, I like what I see so far.
