It ain't gonna work on Acorn without a lot of work that may not be worth
it. Even I have to admit that not many people actually use Squeak on an
Acorn :-( Threads are the problem here. I wonder if there is any
possible way to avoid them? It would potentially be of great value for
no-OS machines as well, so there could be a good reason to look into it.
Somewhere in your code and comments I spotted a musing about whether one
can have plugins that depend upon others as a way to split things up
more. Absolutely we can. They can load each other, unload or simply do
cleanup when a companion is unloaded, all that good stuff. It would make
ports to other machines easier if unneeded parts could simply be ignored
rather than being stubbed out.
It's about time this got serious consideration for the main stream.
