Thanks, Dave.  This clears up a *lot*.  And that code does raise a
dialog.  But, yes, I shouldn't be using private methods.  I didn't
notice what category #notifyError was in.

#succeeded tells me if the command returned non-zero, but how do I get
the actual return code?

Also, I see that CommandShell and OSProcess haven't been updated since
2008.  Would you consider doing a cleanup of these packages?
i.e. Removing obsolete methods such as #notifyError, and making all
tests green in the latest version of Squeak.
CommandShellTestCase»testPipeline65 and
CommandShellTestCase»testPipeline66 are red (errors).  But that's
still really good: 385 out of 387 passes.

however, fails to load into the Squeak image Squeak4.2-10779-alpha.
Could you please fix that, too, if you have the time?
