heh, but placing self as first member of object word structure makes
code uglier. We could use "third o" (third is e.g. used for structure
datatype, or even functions) to get self, instead of current situation,
where you have to use "foreach next first o ...", if you want to iterate
thru obj. words ... another implementation detail? :-)
