Hey Avi! How are you? I think it's not necessarily *more* transparent. It
happens to have a lot of transparence. Perhaps the magmasession api has more
features than the goods client at this time? My point is that having Magma I
see no value to choose GOODS in Squeak todays. In fact I believe that
maturing Magma will add value to the whole community at this point. Anyway
the fact is that I've moved from ImageSegments to Magma with minimal code
But I think that every case should be specifically tested proven to be
worth. I recognise that ImageSegments still providing enormous flexibility
and extreme simplicity.
