I'm rather strongly against ".". And not only because the dot is
already too overloaded in Smalltalk.
Dot-notation is becoming ubiquitous in "pop CS" to the point where
people don't even admit there are alternatives. In one German state
teaching "dot notation" to kids is made mandatory by the school
administration, ruling out the use of Smalltalk as a teaching
language. I kid you not.
Having it creep into Squeak would make this individual sad. If this
means anything to anybody ;)
