I don't think you're reading that the same way I read it. I think they're
saying that while they aren't intentionally breaking it for Squeak core, they
also won't have anyone serving as the "canary in the coal mine" to see if it
And so far, it hasn't. 3.0 works just fine on Squeak-trunk. I actually think
that anything that Seaside breaks can be fixed by making Squeak-trunk support
what Pharo has. Ultimately, there shouldn't need to be a different layer for
"Squeak Compat" vs "Pharo Compat". Squeak *is* Pharo. Pharo *is* Squeak.
They just have redundant dev teams. :)
