Maybe I mis-appraise the situation, I can't recall Craig ever asking for
help. Other than "try out the latest", that is. I don't think there's much
to be done until Spoon is usable to start adding on.
To strain the metaphor, the subway engineer is really just telling you
that shovels should be along soon.<s>
Now, maybe I'm mistaken, but it seems to me that the "project of decent
size" would be Squeak itself. Should Spoon and Squeak not be compatible to
a high degree, particularly at the higher levels?
Once the shovels are available, I can't imaagine we won't see a lot of
digging. But that's speculation for now.
