Wow! I have never seen anything like this in Squeak before. Very

A humble little question: Is there any chance your work would result in
some little tool for creating such small images? Under Squeak-L?

Hehe. Now if we could get a nice binding with a good crossplatform UI
toolkit (Gtk or wxWindows etc) and a superfast Jitter from Ian and/or
Marcus then Squeak would become REALLY attractive to a lot of
developers. ;-)

PS. Marcus - how is it going with your project? Just curious. :-)
