Squeak and object persistence

Squeak is meant to be a laboratory for exploring the pink and blue
directions of objects and Smalltalk, correct?

What kinds of blue ideas are bumping around in people's heads about object
persistence?  I'm currently involved in development using TopLink as a
persistence manager, and it's dissatisfying to design object oriented
systems, and then have to throw away what's right with what performs well
when mapped to a relational database.

So... I'm wondering what the next big thing is in object persistence.
