Out of curiosity: What is the status of traits? What conflicts exist and
need to be addressed? Where can I have a look at the current version to
see what potential conflicts there are and how to work them out?
For the records, I have of course tried to load the 3.7 traits version
from SqueakMap but to no avail - it takes about an hour before it dies
with an "error during install: PureBehavior
class>>compiledMethodAt:ifAbsent:". And when I try to open a debugger I
get repeated errors of the same sort so it's no good even to try to
understand what is going on here.

How about "because we would all like to avoid such delays in the
future"? Is that good enough of a why? ;-)
