Oh yes, tools are not up to date. That should be changed too.
Meanwhile, we can also avoid writing codes like

	| ans |
	[ans := self = anObject] ifError: [:aString :aReceiver | ^ false].
	^ ans

and replace with:

	^[self = anObject] ifError: [false]

I guess one outer temp and one non local return removed are worth a
change in Cog, and to my taste, the code is not less clear.
