The fact that I would potentially need to hack the compiler to write my 
little app raised a huge red flag for me, which indicated that I was 
probably not approaching the problem correctly. I was not reaching 
Smalltalk ZEN. As such, I approached the issue from a different angle 
and am happy to say that i accomplished my goal.

I went from ground zero with Smalltalk to accomplishing my goal in just 
a few days and am actually quite pleased with the outcome. I have not 
had the same early success in other languages I have tried ... So i am 
very pleased with Smalltalk and its development environment.
