I think I've missed a few messages about the state of SmaCC. I have a 
very bright High School student intern who could learn quite a lot 
from it.

What is its current state? What versions of Squeak does it (will it) 
work in? Is there a simple way to get it going? What kinds of extra 
documentation/knowledge will he need to start poking around with it?
