a) I'm not sure anyone has done a full audit to confirm if you run at  
say the 2GB to 3GB boundary that squeak will run and *all*  
functionality will work as expected, just because it runs doesn't  
mean it's not cheerfully rotting bits under you...

b) There *was* work which seems to have a lack of interest on the  
64bit version of squeak, again signed address restrict one to 63bits  
of address space, yes  yes the UI is all 32bit, but someday...

c) The mac carbon VM is set to 512MB in info.plist because when I set  
it to 1GB sometimes it would load at the 2GB boundary and then squeak  
in the past would *die* really fast.
