Yes, Squeak has #printOn: and #printString but it does not have
#displayString and #debugString.
On the other hand Squeak has #asString that VW does not and cannot have.
Since #asString may not be added to VW, Avi agreed to add #displayString
to Seaside and to use
it rather than #asString.
A problem is that if #asString is used in place of #displayString, it
may very well remain unnoticed
during the port.
The intention of these posts is to make as many people as possible aware
