Tweak is impossibly slow on all the PDAs on which I've tried it.  And by
that, I don't mean (like with newer Morphic on a slower PDA) you have a
couple second wait between a stylus tap and a menu popping up- in an
example like that, we are talking about 30 seconds between tap and menu.
I let the Tweak team know this when I tested it, but for the life of me I
can't remember or find their response.  I've not tested Tweak on any sort
of Linux-based PDA, so this covers only WinCE-based PDAs (WinCE 3.0,
Pocket PC 2k/2k2, Windows Mobile 2003-5.0).

I'll check it again when I get Squeak going on the 770 and let you know.

Using Tweak was a thought of mine as well, but for now it doesn't jive.
