But it needs to go somewhere. To the head of the pack where it can
improve our profession. Software engineering is joked out by other
engineering professions because of how bad so much of the engineered
software behaves. I think smalltalk becoming one of the prominant languages
goes a long way to address that.

Thanks for that. Is there a way to turn those changes into a squeakmap
package like they did with the "seaside installer" and "pier" packages? Or
would it be possible to turn into a theme somehow?
Also, after I did all those things the debugger doesn't highlight code right
anymore. I can't tell exactly what code is running because the highlight
is in the wrong place.
Has anyone else seen this?
