I feel slightly uneasy that debate about this TIP is occurring here and 
on the wiki, and yet notification of its existence hasn't even reached 
tcl-core yet. I have written some fairly substantial notes on the TIP at 
http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~nem/newoo.txt . These notes were supposed to 
be a post to tcl-core, but I don't want to further pre-empt the TIP 

I'm only an occassional XOTcl user, so my comments are aimed mostly at 
what I think would be consistent and useful for Tcl generally, and not 
consistency with XOTcl.

Anyway, many cheers to you all for kicking off this process.
