To make one thing clear: I do understand that code history
is *extremely* important. And I do know that we need
even more than a simple per-method history can do.
At SCG, we actually do research into analyzing history
of code... so be assured that we understand why it's needed,
that it is needed, and that without a past there will be no future.
But: Right know the code-history of Squeak is not scalable enough
to provide a history for the whole system, and we need to
balance between what is possible easily now and what is needed
for the future.
