Yes, I think cross-posting is a good idea.
And I suggest that you post to Stackoverflow first and then invite
people from the Squeak list to contribute.

The answers on stackoverflow are indexed in a better way than in this
mailing list.

Note aside: good keywords in mailing lists posts also help to identify
an answer in the archive.

There are quite a number of Squeak related questions
