Squeak Modules
This is the place for growing documentation and everything else related to the Modules/Repositories/Packages system being added to Squeak 3.1 (2001-09-26) The version was in fact bumped to 3.3 more or less to mark the release of the modules code.

Lots of interesting stuff.

Delta Modules, for example, seem very much related to the notion of abstraction breaking I discussed in my Ada-Europe'2001 paper (full text requires S-V subscription). [This is related to ideas from generic programming, as I discuss in that paper. For example, Odersky's lectures at the GP summer school is titled OO anf Functional approaches to compositional programming]

Delta modules seem like a neat idea. They remind me a bit of categories in Objective-C; adding or replacing methods in existing classes without subclassing or posing.
