This seems like a neat hack.  It raises two issues:

1. Emacs contains a widget system, widget.el.  It looks like Etalk is
cleaner than the mechanisms used for widget.el, so perhaps it would be
good to replace all that with your code.  However, your widget system
needs to have all the facilities of the existing one.  Then, part of
installing your widget system would be making cus-edit.el use your
widget system.

2. People are doing some real work towards rehosting Emacs Lisp on
Scheme.  If we do that, how would it affect Etalk?  Would it be
possible to define classes in Scheme and define subclasses using Lisp,
for instance?
