To make that work, I think you only need to throw out John's explicit UTF8/UTF32 stuff and let Squeak's automatic ByteString/WideString take over. You just need to find the "edges" of the system where you need to explicitly convert to/from utf8.

Err, maybe I've misunderstood but the explicit uft8/32 stuff *is* Scratch's homegrown. So I don't see how I could continue to use that and throw it away at the same time…
What did I miss?

If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0
