Quickly, whilst I have net access...

The 'VI4' work referred to on that swiki page is emphatically not a 
universally agreed designation or description of what a release 4.0 
would be. Anthony's work is valuable, needed and will surely become 
part of the system but it ain't 'Version 4.0 of Squeak'.

People have to remember that all of us working on Squeak are short of 
time and most of us unpaid and trying to scrape a living. If you're 
impatient, find some bloody money and start paying.
