No, that's the first I've seen of it. It's interesting that you took
the approach of trying to load the Self snapshot file. I hadn't thought
of that. I think the first step would be to get a Self compiler working
in Squeak. Also, how do you like the Self syntax overall? I haven't
used Self that much...there are a few things that I'm not so sure I
like, but I'll reserve any comment until I've had more experience with
Another thing that I thought would be interesting is running Python in
Squeak (interesting to see how well it could perform that is).
Prototype objects might be a convenient place to start a Python
implementation since they allow for the dynamic addition of instance
variables (like Python). I don't think you'd need the delegation
capability for Python though.
