Pharo is a fork of Squeak, and its getting more and more independent.  
That is, its not "a thread *within* Squeak".

Pharo is based on Squeak 3.9, not 3.10.
We don't re-implement the kernel, at least not for now. The current  
focus is on cleaning up and removing stuff we are not interested in  
(like toys), and providing a stable basis for professional use.
