Experimentation is what Inbox is for.  Trunk is for changes we already
know we like.

I see no reason to make it personal about Karl.  I didn't.  I /never/
evaluate changes based on who did them, only the content and how they
affect the system.  When you have criticized my past contributions, I
did not take it personally.  I know that is important if I want Squeak
to be the best it can be.

I apologize for the sentence with "wrong-headed" in it, that was
overly critical.  But the rest is pretty much straight facts.  This
change is not ready for trunk.  It loses functionality and FileList2
is something we're trying to deprecate so we should not be introducing
new dependencies on it, should we?
