Changing the subject line.
Can anyone provide status of MathMorphs and Morphic Wrappers on current
Squeak? Have there been any recent updates?
Edgar has included Morphic Wrappers in his FunSqueak5dot2alpha image, so
it certainly can be done:
I don't think that Edgar plans to do further maintenance on this, so it
would be great if some other interested folks can help.

> It's fairly old code - as evidenced by the fact that you had to permit underscore assignments. I see that the MathMorphs package got updated for 5.1 in 2014 (http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1195) *but* the latest version of MorphicWrappers pointed to still has that same version of the correctVariable:interval: method.

The less good news is that the method got massively refactored in 2009 and the prior version to that from 2005 was already very different to the copy in MorphicWrappers-edc.3 So we'd need to look at the full history and find the version just prior to 11/4/2000 to work out what change was intended and make whatever equivalent change to the current version.
