No. "Areitha Ffenestri" that was talked about in a different thread  
provides this support.

Squeak always renders as if it was unobstructed, into a Form known to  
the VM.  The VM takes care of pushing the Form's pixels to the screen  
whenever they are modified, or when parts of the window are exposed.

Not sure what you're asking. Of course, drawing can be modified, but  
that's obvious, right?
