    I found an interesting nugget at the end of
which is the need to integrate data models in different databases. “If your application is managing what you want to think of as a single database which is in fact spread over multiple engines,” says Stonebraker, “with different data models, different transaction systems, different everything, than you want a next-generation federation mechanism to make it as simple as possible to program.”

This would seem to play to Smalltalk's strengths.
