I did look there, the reason I asked was I didn't believe it to be
this simple so I wanted to be sure I didn't miss something tricky.
And now that I know there are no hidden traps to modification, I take
my words about UP being less pleasant to deal with than SP back!

WOW!!!  Is there anything in Squeak that is supported or official?!!!
