Hold on. An assessment of the form "project foo is ahead of us in area 
x, y, or z" should not be seen as heretic, but rather as an 
encouragement to improve in this area. I'd have to agree that Polymorph 
gives Pharo an edge in the looks. In fact I'd hoped that we'd be able to 
have a loadable version of Polymorph by now. That this hasn't happened 
isn't Edgar's fault. Blaming him that Pharo looks nicer serves no 
purpose whatsoever.
