Smalltalk does not allow you to do calls of any kind, everything goes
through the messaging system . To have the same in another language you
will have to disable the ability to call functions and method and replace
them with messages. No language such feature not even lisp, the language
that excels at manipulating its syntax . In order to implement this you
will have to go deep into the implementation of the language and
essentially change it to something , probably a new programming language.
