I has long struck me that a missing element of all Oberon systems is
consideration of upgrades/versions. COM (somewhat) solves this problem
by simply having all components wired to specific other dependent
components. Each new version is a completely different thing.
I don't have an Oberon solution but would think this would be a good
Ph.D. dissertation for ETH.
