Well, I don't feel strongly about this, and I don't see what needs to  
be changed back in Squeak or Cuis.

What I say is that the behavior we have in ST-80 / Squeak / Cuis seems  
right to me, I don't see any problem at all.

So, please elaborate: What should be changed back in Squeak (or Cuis)?  
Why does (1/2) isLiteral = false needs fixing? I mean, where is the  
bug? (I mean in ST-80, Squeak and Cuis. Not Pharo, where there is a  
bug while debugging this stuff.)
