...which reminds me of an interesting proposal relating to file name
problems/possibilties and a recent thread; how about simply making Squeak
handle filenames as URLs and be done with it?  We did it for the Interval
MediaTalk stuff and it worked rather nicely. No platform confusion in the
software, interesting capabilities and users are getting to be pretty familiar
with URLs so there isn't really any great problem with the 'different' syntax -
since it isn't really different anymore!
