|Bistro supports metaclass polymorphism. However, because metaclasses are always instantiated as singletons, they cannot be abstract and so cannot define abstract methods.||
|Bistro uses explicit class names to qualify and resolve references to super from inside inner classes. The convention used adheres to Sun's amended inner class specification. Apparently, some compilers do not support this, producing a compilation error when super is qualified by an outer class name.||
