OK. I also agree it is aesthetically displeasing.
Some months ago, I did a quick-and-dirty GLORP version 0.2.5 port. Now
I'm wanting to update it to the current 0.2.12, and this time I want it
to be a bit better than "quick-and-dirty", so that it can more easily
track the evolution of GLORP as it occurs.
However, GLORP uses a bunch of underscores in the method names, which
makes it a bit more difficult to come up with a quality approach that
will allow the Squeak port to easily track the GLORP evolution.
Maybe I'll have to think about it some more.
