Yea, screen *de*composition AND screen composition, all centered around 
VT100/VT220 terminal protocols.

As for connecting Squeak to a serial port, which as you say must be 
polled, another idea comes to mind:  write a small C program that talks 
to the telnet port, and then turns around and talks to Squeak via TCP/IP.

Hmm, I just don't know about this project, or exactly what the easiest 
way to proceed would be.  But if I can come up with an elegant solution, 
I just might have a substantial amount of paid Squeak work ahead of me 
(which I could surely use right now).
