Somehow I got amiable through Keiths Mail to the pharo list. He was
blaming the pharo crew for not caring about squeak and things/fixes
others do. That was exactly the reason back then for me to fix it in
pharo and then open a bug on mantis as well. So it turns out that the
integrational aspect doesn't work in either direction. 

And now I'm really concerned, too. Would be good to have at least a
minimal exchange base between all squeak forks.
