I hope, it will be sooner than later. I like ST/X very much, because it 
is fast (an OmniBase test run 10x faster than in Squeak) and can be used 
free of charge and the UI is also pretty nice. When I looked at Seaside 
in ST/X some time ago, I ported some classes from Squeak which were 
missing so that I didn't get any DNUs. However, I didn't know about 
continuations, all I read about it is 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuation. Does one have to alter VM to 
have it? I do not see any primitive calls in the Squak VM. (I am a noob).
