Hi, there.

I think that new tools should either subclass CodeHolder or Model. We can try to shrink the interface of StringHolder in the future.

Doru the key difference with stringHolder is that in StringHolder
nobody understand how it works.
Because it I would know I would go way faster. So I suggest that we
spend next two weeks not typing code on moose but only fixing comments
and we will get a real impact.
For pharo I have always to reverse engineer (network, filesystem...)
because people forget that a soft is finihsed with it is really

This update is a very modest contribution to the documentation of
StringHolder :-)

More input is welcome....
