    Now that's a good concept! I've thought about that, too. Having
    Squeak as a personality on a Mach Kernel is as good as a native
    SqueakOS, or maybe even better because you can run it in parallel
    with other OSesthat you might need. Too bad that my Performa does
    not yet run MkLinux, otherwise I would probably have started that
    project already...

What are the implications of this? What does it mean to have "Squeak
as a personality" as opposed to having Squeak as an application?
