Obviously any pretty printer that does this is worthless.
And for me, the pretty printer is essential.
Therefore, any release with a broken pretty printer is a worthless
release. At least for me. And that's the main reason I would never
consider Squeak release version 3.6, but have stayed at 3.5 for
production, and dabbled with 3.7 for "play".
I don't care so much that the pretty printer "messes up comments"-- to
me that is just a strong suggestion to refactor with more
"intention-revealing selectors", thus eliminating the need for the
comments. I tend to just have comments at the top anyway (but not always
just there-- only "mostly" just there).
I also really don't care what "pretty printing" algorithm is used to do
the pretty printing. I can get used to almost anything, as long as it is
