Really? Interesting, I hadn't heard about that in other flavours of
Smalltalk. Is it a general Squeak convention or a Seaside convention?

Shouldn't #setName: be in the 'private' protocol then, rather than in
'initialization'? That's how I was taught to do it, way back when,
and/or to add a "private" method comment for unsuspecting browsers.
I've encountered other conventions, like #_name:, #privateName: or
#basicName: rather than simply #name:, for various purposes, but not
the #setSomething: one.
