This might sound defensive but isn't meant to: the comparison of this frameworks could be an exercise on curiosity but I fail to see real value on this. I mean, what's the point? prove what to whom? Our segment is too irrelevant for this kind of thing anyway. 

More interesting would be to compare with other non-smalltalk frameworks so at least could provide a little more confidence to some smalltalker to pitch investors that might question smalltalk. But that's hardly an issue these days and that lack of confidence puts him/her in a quite unfoundable position so...
