I'm perplexed why Squeak hasn't been abandoned in favor of OpenCroquet/cobalt... Instead it seems the reverse has happened... =\ 

In terms of standards, Vulkan is the future so yeah, OpenCroquet would have to be ported to Vulkan. But then you would need a SPIR compiler and a bunch of other stuff...
