I think most people don't break portability intentionally. They are
just not aware that they break it (this probably includes me).

It's good to have such a list as a guideline. I think it would be even
better, if we had Lint rules for that.

When dealing with urls we do #printString  and #asString (implemented
in WAUrl). I guess this is a problem, right.

WAInspector >> #evaluate: aString
	^self object class evaluatorClass new
		evaluate: aString
		in: nil
		to: self object.

Is this plattform specific?
