Speaking of which, I was nosing around the Xanadu/Udanax site not to 
long ago and ran across a description of their Xtalk / X++ system. 
Apparently it's a subset-of-Smalltalk to subset-of-C++ compiler, just 
the ticket for Slang++.

Lots of support code has been released, but not the actual translator. 
Anyone know what the status of their "disentanglement" process is? 
Anybody think this would be useful to Squeak?
