[squeak-dev] Alternatives to inform:

My goal is to have a version of squeak (let's call it sapphire) that
does not pop up windows all the time anywhere (especially annoying if
we want to have a
server or headless system).
So I plan to have a look at all the inform: and other in the packages
of sapphire and I would like to have a way to
provide feedback via an UI elements or not. I thought that I should
look at toothpick.
