No problem. I just want us to be honest with our own shortcomings :-) 
Does Pharo look better? Yes. Does it have to stay that way? Hell, no. If 
it weren't for the problem of having 300k overrides and extensions in 
Polymorph we'd have long merged it. Unfortunately Polymorph is indeed a 
tricky beast to merge and it looks as if it may not be possible without 
help from the original authors. Who seem to be mostly Pharo oriented, 
too bad. We'll just have to work something out I guess :-)

There isn't. At least I'm not running one :-)

Actually, I'm too! :-)
