From the described situation below would Squeak be able to read/write
to the file systems of all/most of the Squeak supported OSes?
I've helped people in the past before renaming, moving, fixing files on
their computer. I used Python to do the job. (hangs head) :)
It would have been nice not to have to download software to their
computer they'll never use to perform single-time tasks. Now of course
with Squeak I would really like for them to have a reason to download
and keep on their machine. :) And I think they are coming.
