One point to consider is that people buying Mark Guzdial's book as the
first entrance into Squeak will be using 2.8 since that is the version
included on the CD.  It might be good to leave the BankAccount tutorial as
it is with a notation that it is 2.8 specific and have a pointer to the
newer version.
