Don't misunderstand me, I'm not complaining, you'd guys did a great job and
a tremendous amount of work.  I contributed nothing to 3.9, I'm well aware
of that, I've been spending all my time just trying to get Squeak in use at
work, on 3.8.  I don't have time to play with alpha/beta/gamma releases.
I'm just happy to be using Smalltalk at all.  

I'm simply agreeing with Andreas that maybe, in the future, there's a better
process that'll be smoother than the current one, and require less Herculean
efforts from a select few such as yourself and Marcus.  I don't mean to
preach, I certainly don't have the right, I'm a rookie.
