[Vm-dev] Stdin/stdout/stderr support

I have implemented direct support for std streams:


This will catch filenames like "/dev/stderr" and connect the real  
stderr instead (also preventing to close these).

This file pattern is in usage already, e.g.


In OLPC we used this to log errors (we added FileStream class>>stderr  
etc.) because SqueakDebug.log is in an unaccessible place, but using  
the /dev/stderr symlink is broken by the security architecture, so I  
need to access the actual stderr.

Any objections to make this go into the trunk Cross platform dir?
