For Dolphin I propose the next plan:

1. Port SPort portability layer to Dolphin (urgent!),
2. port Swazoo 1.1.x (dev.branch towards 2.0) to Dolphin,
3. adjust Seaside and Aida to a new Swazoo,
4. include changes and goodies (like GUI console) from Steve's Swazoo,
5. release Swazoo 2.0 on Dolphin, together with 2.0 on other dialects.

In parallel there would be nice to do the same for Squeak and maybe some 
other dialect too, so that we can exchange porting experiences and also 
make Swazoo even more easy to port in future.

See also my statement of direction at http://www.swazoo.org/development.html

So, all that said I think we can achieve as you propose, Esteban. But 
porting SPort is definitively a first step. Is there anyone who is 
willing to do SPort port ASAP?

Best regards
