As with any complex machine, we work for Squeak so that, one day, it
can work for us. My philosophy is that day should always be today, to
the maximum degree possible. In an age when "old" is a dirty word, I
actually respect old code (not bad code), because it was able to work
for people a long time before people had to work for it.

should justify their real-world value relative to the additional
complexity they require the human-side to absorb.
