I prefer +open_without_install +poke_around_in_a_Smalltalk_IDE, am a  
frequent user of the File Contents Browser. Wouldn't change the format of  
the sourcecode so existing tools can be used.

Example: search for class name InstrumentingAssociation on the web,


Pull the one that looks interesting into Squeak's File Contents Browser  
(just in case you haven't used it before, the tools opens .cs and .st  
files from local directories and server directories) and browse it. As  
usual the tool tells about differences to your running image.


P.S. I don't compare the above with MC ;-)
