Well, not only. Giovanni explicitly stated that as a "negative
observation" and I really fail to see what is negative about it. More
like practical reality given that we're talking about students who are
(hopefully) doing this to learn something. If it's got a useful outcome
that's great but the baseline assumption should be that it *won't* end
up in a Squeak release.
