The purpose of inheritance is not only to make it shorter.
With inheritance, users can make a new lang. env. easily by
inheriting the one that matches best to his purpose.

Another way is to make a new lang. env. by copying an
existing one.

With inheritance, the change to parent affects lang. envs
inheritting it.  With copying, no.  So, purhaps both method
is useful (as well as the case of face).
