Hi all,

Bert and I were discussing the implications of power usage (or rather 
non usage) of Squeak on the OLPC.

IIRC Squeak still does some polling (event tickler?).
This has also caused quite some pain for people running Squeak on a server:
Squeak will always stay in the working set using a few percent CPU 
(=power!) constantly, even if it effectively has been idle for a long time.

What would it take to change the VM and Squeak to make it truly event
