I thought it would be nice to have a class browser/development tool for Java
that worked like Squeak's.... and the portability of Squeak would be an
advantage for development.

The ideas you mentioned sound about right. I envision a tool that allows for
classes to be rapidly "cobbled" together, and (hopefully :-)) compiled by a
call to javac. The embedded javavm would be interesting, but I doubt anybody
has the time for that :-)
