F.Y.I., version 2.0 (beta this Friday, final two weeks later) has a primitive in it for string compare. It is compiled from Squeak, and it accepts a third argument which specifies the collation order. Thus the same primitive serves for case-sensitive as well as case-insensitive comparisons. It should certainly improve the stringCompare statistic.
