Off topic Smalltalk question

I have a non-squeak Smalltalk question. I hope the list does not mind, but
is likely to have experience I need to query.
Both VW and Dolphin have COM interop features. They both seem to provide
basic automation interop, and support for structured storage. VW looks to
go a bit more deeply in supporting data transfer for the clipboard and such.
If I need to copy data from a Smalltalk application and paste it into an
office application using linking and embedding is VW or Dolphin going to
work better for me? If all I am doing is clipboard copying which is better?
VW has a vaster VM and larger doc set, but the COM features appear to be 3
years old. That may be OK since COM has not been changing much. Is VW or
Dolphin implementation more stable? Does one provide better interactive
debugging? Does the in-process case supported by Dolphin make that much of
I have done COM programming in the past, but that was using MS Java in the
VW 2.5 days when it did not have COM connect.
