There is a FileOut30 package which provides writing out code in a lot
of dialects (it's in the public store). If you want to convert a
complete package just install FileOut30. In the preferences you can
choose squeak as file out format. If you file out the package you should
be able to read it in squeak without too much hussle.

If you are not successful than email me. I use my own converter for
VW code to port Glorp to squeak.

Glorp can figure out a lot of the mapping setting on its own. For 
easy mappings you can just leave out class mapping and descriptor
mappings. No need to have ActiveRecord stuff from the start.
