What is your definition of "behavior"? How specifically (if at all) does it differ from "sending a message", "invoking a function" and "invoking a method"? Does that distinction (if it exists) exist for methods of value classes? Of classes with mutable state?

I am curious. I am also curious to see the degree of agreement between your answers and other comp.object regulars.
