Hi Dale,

> The bigger problem is that I have to have a code base that runs on multiple platforms while being maintainable, so a "port" to Pharo-2.0 is only a starting point. In the case of FileTree, which is the real bottleneck there's a lot code that is written against the FileDirectory API, so there will need to be significant work to find a way to keep a common code base .... a much tougher problem, than "just getting it working", it can be solved with time, but I didn't budget time for an emergency rewrite of FileTree ... today.

Just FYI, there is a Sport portability library and by using Sport's
SpFilename you have an instantly portable file support over quite a
dozen Smalltalks. So, if someone adapt Sport to a new Pharo 2.0
filesystem first ..
