Allthough still a bit terse it is recent information (July 2002) and I
think it covers an important area and is helpful as is. 

The outline is very interesting
    * A full example from Smalltalk down to C
    * Sidebar: more about Squeak
    * Sidebar: more about Spread
    * Appendix 1: Slang reference
          o InterpreterPlugin operators and methods
    o TestInterpreterPlugin operators and methods (in Smalltalk)
    * Appendix 2: InterpreterProxy API (in Smalltalk)
    * Other resources

So I put a link to it from the 'Maximum Squeak' page on the minnow


I as well put a note that you might be willing to answer questions
related to the paper.
