Instance protocol:

accessing
o  classNames
return the names of the classes contained in that module

o  dynamic
return true, if this module was loaded dynamically
(as opposed to a module which was linked into the system right from the start.
Do not confuse this with shared libraries - these may be dynamic or not).

o  handle

o  handle: something

o  id
return the modules internal id; this is (currently) a small number,
with positive values for dynamically added modules.
Modules which were present at startup (both statically linked or shared libraries)
have a negative id (Do not depend on this - use #dynamic instead).

o  isSingleMethod

o  libraryName
return the name of this library. Typically, this is the libraries
filename without a suffix (such as 'libbasic')

o  name
return the modules name - usually, some descriptive text plus the modules
libraryName.

o  package
retrieve the modules packageId.
For now, this is constructed, but will be kept in the VM in later
versions.

o  pathName
return the modules pathName

o  timeStamp
return the modules timeStamp

o  type
return the modules type. This is a symbol, such as #classLibrary.

backward compatibility
o  at: key
backward compatibility access: in previous releases, IdentityDictionaries
were used to hold my information. Allow access via key messages.
This method will vanish - use the proper access protocol.

** This is an obsolete interface - do not use it (it may vanish in future versions) **

printing & storing
o  printOn: aStream
