Lots of progress on the Reflectivity project…

What is now working is this:

1) define a simple “Halt once” link:

	haltLink := MetaLink new 
		metaObject: Halt;
		selector: #once.

2) install on the GlobalVariable that is referencing class Object:

	Object binding link: haltLink.

3) enable haltOnce in the system Menu

—> next time the global variable “Object” is accessed, you get a halt.

Keep in mind that lots of things are not yet working… but every day some progress.

Next big issues to fix 

- #after and #instead for LiteralVariable
- links on Slots and Temps
- more tests
- classes should be able to define which methods should use meta-recursing stopper
- make "Object methods do: #createTwin. Object methods do: #invalidate.” work
