This is totally tangent but I was supposed to relay a message from
somebody (IIRC it was originally from Dave Ungar but a few hops in
between) pointed out that "13" is BlockContext and "14" is
MethodContext in the image.
(This level of nitpicking may not have anything to do with average
Squeakers but for VM hackers I understand it could be crucial^^;)
