I'd like to use one of them for threaded callbacks (the foreign callback process slot, upon which a callback from a foreign thread can be run) and keep another in reserve.  In Smalltalk these are indices 36 & 38 in SmalltalkImage>>recreateSpecialObjectsArray.  Objections, encouragements, alternatives?
