Bravo Edward!

Running the latest Etoys on the latest Squeak is something we've
wanted to do for a long time. I don't know that there's anyone
actively working on it now, but we'd certainly welcome your efforts.

This is the right place to bring up issues that you find while working
on the manual. I'd guess that some of your changes would apply to
Squeak and others to Etoys, but there are Etoys developers on this
list, so they'll undoubtedly find their way to the right place. Feel
free to ask questions or post changesets here or submit Monticello
versions to the Inbox repository.

Thanks Edward, for tackling this.
