self species new

The 'species' methods allow a class to specify which abstraction it
claims to be.  Thus, sending a species copy message to a byteSymbol
will create a new string, not a new byteSymbol.  It's a hack.

I'm not sure what I think about implementing a copy method, or a
convention for making other instances of the same class.
