Thanks for the reminder.

Can you comment as to whether the Mantis 7260 patch for handling Nan
in the Float comparison primitives should be included in the VMMaker
package? I think that the answer is yes, but I'm not certain if there
might be side effects for existing code.

I will wait one week and then add the changes to VMMaker on SqueakSource
if no objections have been raised.
