Okay, I have one conceptual issue.
a.) VMpr_Behavior_basicNewInitialize will lookup_selector (cache) and
notice that Object>>#initialize is an empty method and we can skip the

_gst_send_message_internal will not lead to the code being executed

have a PRIM_SEMI_SUCCEED and just call >>#initialize. This doesn't seem
to be possible right now.
