Hi Blochl,

Thanks for the references, I'll take a look immediately.

After my last email I found the DCI mailing list and Jim and Trygve are
active member, I haven't asked yet the question about what was wrong with
smalltalk implementation but I'll do that and share the answer with you

Thanks for all once again
