The next release comes with two flavors:
(a) XOTcl 2.0, which is mostly backward compatible,
(b) a new object system with a different syntax (among many other things,
    one cannot call arbitrary methods via dash syntax).

For XOTcl 2.0, the behavior for this example is like in XOTcl 1.* (it 
has to be
for compatibility for many one-liners out there), for the new syntax, 
you get an
error message (... and,  by default, one has to use "Car create c1"  
instead of
"Car c1",  since the latter is dangerous as well).
