Looks sort of like our procedural language, except that instead of
having a "pool" of functions, functions can be "member functions" of a
class. In order to do this "all the way", it seems like we will need
all instances to appear in their parent classes -- Select
people.average_age() should hit all instances of people, even those
that have been subclassed into teachers, police, lawyers, etc.
