There's always SmallTalk, of course. Maybe you disagree, but I've heard more than one self-proclaimed OO-purist declare SmallTalk to be the only *true* OO language. And that alledgedly "one and only true OO language" is, to the best of my knowledge, a thousand times more strictly hierarchical than Java or C-with-any-suffix.

Hmmmmmm. Is it really the *algebra* you think is crippled ? What kind of operation do you think is unsupported by the algebra ?
