Yay. VW rocks - I've loved it since day 1. I've used VAST in a large project,
too, and it wasn't exactly bad (especiall its GUI builder), but its streaming
classes (and some other stuff) are horrible - probably the worst example of
incompetent Smalltalk class library design I've ever seen :-(

BTW, Happy New Year everybody - may all your wishes for this year come true!
