No. First, Exupery is not a JIT. Second, it is not yet in a state where
it can be used for serious production projects. Third, having a plugin
doesn't mean you can't have a pure smalltalk version - in fact the pure
smalltalk version would be the default isn't available. Therefore,
adding the primitives doesn't take anything away, all it does is add
some very significant speed benefits.
