I've parsed quite a bunch of the .cs files from your directory and found
only *good* things (since I have not much to compare against when reading
them with a web browser ;) like for example #methodClass during boot; also
putting (s := myStream upToEnd) into Parser's loop on
ReparseAfterSourceEditing; also the new bytecodes which look damned cool !
Wish I could compare more, against original methods and by using Smalltalk
tools for example, what 3.9 plus VMMaker did you use (patches?). Can I
prepare an .image by myself or do you intend to upload a prepared one?
