I don't know if "lots of people like to use it" or not. The LIngo OO 
model was never quite pure (with the parent thing distracting from the 
real issues). I documented part of that stuff and still didn't see the 
core OO stuff I'd hoped for.

And I would say that even if everyone who writes Lingo code likes using 
the OO features, that is still a minuscule audience. (Though admittedly 
probably still larger than the Transcript audience...yet.)
