The first thing that is different about Wheat, is that the Object model is very different than the object model in Java, Smalltalk, Perl, PHP, etc.. Those systems have a heap based object model. Objects are allocated in the heap and exist in a sort of soup.

Wheat's object model is like the unix file system: There is a root object, and every other object is explicitly contained in another.

So like a file system:

Wheat is 100% consistent in this: every little integer and string, every instance variable, every local variable on the stack (and the stack, and the threads) are all objects, and are in a single tree.
