I stalled with a laptop screen dying with my half-completed work on
it, and then distracted by PetitParser. Having given a bunch of
half-baked excuses :) it's high time I restarted my efforts.

As always, Lukas is very helpful and polite. I suggested a plan of
attack that he thinks isn't unreasonable, and once I reload the bits
and pieces I will attempt to break Helvetia into several packages - a
core, with no UI dependencies at all, a Pharo integration package, and
a Squeak integration package. Or at least rip out the UI integration
so I can use the core, and hope to attract helpers for any UI
integration :)
