Will that SqueakSource run on Gemstone by chance? You see, we are
looking into porting SqueakSource to Seaside 2.7 (which would probably
mean rewriting the whole UI) and the model is quite simple (only 12
classes). Additionally we are looking for some real persistence
solution. So if you need some kind of demo application .... ;)
