Pharo allows you to use underscores in method selectors.
This is currently in Pharo 1.1 and not 1.0.

Does that makes sense to have in Squeak trunk/Cuis too?


(HTTPSocket httpGet: 'http://www.assembla.com/spaces/SqueakDBX/documents/dvVhPSvuCr3OqXeJe5aVNr/download/underscore.cs') 		readStream fileIn

And you can implement a method


Makes sense in conjunction with Glorp (when a database column
mapped to a class has underscores in it) or FFI (where one
can name methods like C constants, ...), ...

If it would be in all base images the Glorp loader wouldnt 
have to patch these.
