[squeak-dev] Looking for a volunteer to help with DataStream on Spur

Spur adds two new immediate classes, Character and SmallFloat64. It
also adds 61-bit SmallIntegers in 64-bits.
DataStream/ReferenceStream/SmartRefStream are all affected by this. e.g.
ReferenceStream testWith: $a
fails on 32-bit and 64-bit Spur.
ReferenceStream testWith: SmallInteger maxVal
fails (silently, to be fixed soon) on 64-bit Spur.
Is anyone kind enough and motivated enough to give this code some love and
at least make it work for
32-bit Spur => 32-bit Spur
64-bit Spur => 64-bit Spur
but also hopefully for
32-bit Spur <=> 64-bit Spur
32-bit V3 => 32-bit Spur
32-bit V3 => 64-bit Spur
