A number of additional features have been added to GemStone/S in order 
to make migration from Squeak as easy as possible. For example, GS/S now 
supports the underscore character for assignment. More importantly (for 
Philippe's concern), each VM may load its own base class overrides and 
additions. Thus, if some class has a #description method whose behavior 
is different from the base image, you may load a Monticello package that 
provides the new behavior. Given that Magritte is already available on 
two dialects (Squeak and VisualWorks), it seems that porting it to GS/S 
would not be a major difficulty. Given that GS/S can import from 
Monticello, it ought to be reasonably easy to find out.
