I can hardly wait to see it!

Yes, and I never use a Workspace since I have them.

1. I don't know if the Tile halo is working well, but it would be nice if 
I have a "named" wrapper (I mean a "temporary variable"), when you click 
over the tile halo only shows the name (by now I think it shows it's 
printString), I'm not sure if the tile is working correcltly (I am new 
with the scripting stuff) but if is not, it would be nice to make it work.


a) Thinking of the way I'm using the wrappers (like a Workspace), it 
would be nice that when you have an object attached to the hand if you 
click one of the 3 mouse bottons (maybe the right or the middle one) 
automaticaly throws the object to the trash (half of the times I have an 
Object attached to the hand I don't need it, I just wanted to see some
instance variable or something like that).

b) Another option is to adopt the same behavior that the View halo has
(which is: if you don't keep pressed the left button it thows it to the 
trash), maybe this it would be better because I think many people is
working with the View halo.

3. Another nice thing would be to have a place to type text and after 
that be able to evaluate it and after the evaluation to have the result 
of the evaluation attached to the hand (some kind of printIt in a wrapper

4.- I vote to have the trash can by default in the lower right position
of the window.

I think it's OUTSTANDING!, I believe you and Luciano figured out of what 
a morphic workspace should be (I don't want to hurt nobody's feelings, but 
if you all take a look at the wrappers I think you'll agree with me)

Look at mine and don't panic!
