/*    This message is deprecated.  Use fetchLong32, fetchLong64 or  
fetchPointer */

sqInt fetchWordofObject(sqInt fieldIndex, sqInt oop) {
     error("deprecated -- do not use -- and then delete me");

Yes, but Croquet invokes the FFI  plugin which invokes  
fetchWordofObject, and dies...  Try Croquet and a mac carbon 3.8.8b2  
VM and see what happens.
I'll further note the suggestion to use  fetchLong32... is not  
possible because I don't see fetchLong32 as an entry in the  

So I'd suggest we change fetchWordofObject back to the original  
logic,  to avoid toasting all the plugins that use it?
