Yes; my example wasn't Smalltalk, just mildly "similar". The purpose was to sketch the "foo:bar:baz" notation; sorry if this was not clear.

As a Smalltalk user (still haven't finished my Smalltalk compiler;
too busy supervising students) who frequently consults the standard
and peers at the compiler's workings from time to time, I can tell
you that Smalltalk has no such syntax.
