I have nothing against keeping most of the transport-specific
instantiation protocol in (NetStream class), for convenience. It was
specialized non-metaclass behavior that was getting out of hand, as I
kept implementing support for new transports. It became rather
unreadable. It's okay now, but it'd all be even more readable without
classes at all...

Since 28 November. :( It's all AT&T/@Home fallout. "They" currently
tell me that things should get sorted out by the end of the month. I'm
shopping for a place where I can have an A-record and part of a machine,
to use as backup when this inevitably happens again. Suggestions welcome
(privately, please). It was nice having complete physical access to an
upstream-connected machine at home... I could run all sorts of weird
experiements and have full log access.

Unfortunately it's a tricky thing to transmit via change sets (as you
might guess from the previous releases), and I won't have time to do it
until... the end of the month (hmm, that's quite a magical time, the end
of the month! :). Of course, the situation will be better once Squeak
has a module system, but it'll be tricky for a while. FWIW, I'll attach
the website's "architecture" document to this message.
