Tim, what are your plans with my "inspiration" on source files' limits.

I'm contributing to decompiler as much as I can. But the way I understand  
Squeak community is, the new compiler will *not* make it into mainstream.  
So it can only be distributed as an optional package, and besides the  
package owner's own priorities IMO there is no 3.10/4.0 deadline for the  
new compiler.

After all the mistakes from the past, *not* accepting Pavel's overrides  
will only split the community further.

As said above, I'm working on the new decompiler.
