VW applet plugin

I think this is something they have been meaning to do for many
years, but it is 'vaporware' at present. Has anyone actually used
this applet plugin? It looks to me like they will have to do what VW
has already done. More re-use in the Smalltalk communities would
be a good thing.

Anyway, here is the word from the horse's mouth, James Robertson,
after I emailed him on this issue:

Right now it assumes that it will load parcels.  However, since all the
actual work is done with communication with the browser (a C interface),
I assume porting could be done.
