Yes when I've had a chance to try 2.8 myself.  I've got a lot of clients 
using 2.5 and 2.7 so it is difficult for me to stay current.  I 
appreciate any help I get from the community. ;-)

I suspect you could make a few tweaks and have it working and I'd be 
happy to walk you through it...just e-mail me directly.

Have a look at Albatross.  It is on SqueakSource.  It has the distinct 
advantage of letting you test javascript functionality as well.
