beware that what is old to you may be current to others. for example I
remember you stating a few years ago on this list that bookmorphs should
be discarded. well I use them (a lot) in muO (and I improved them a lot
to, so maybe I could contribute)

this is harsh: I'm using Etoy in muO (not much but enough to care about
it); so what are you suggesting for my "fun" ? should I port muO to
Squeakland, which I never used ?
please respect the way other people (me, for example) use and work with
Squeak. for what I understand you do not use Morphic very much. I do, a
lot, and I can tell you this is to me THE major strong feature in
Squeak. If it was not for Morphic I would only code in Lisp. Morphic is
incredibly powerful and has absolutely no equivalent that I know of, so
please, please leave to the people using it the decision about which
part of it should be discarded. about Etoys, this has been discussed in
this list many times, and the solution that makes everybody happy is
very simple: ok to remove it if it can be loaded back.
I really feel offended by your "Period" sentence, so please forgive my
tone if it seems rude in this message; I just want to be clear.
