yeah, it is hard to sell things which "should be done yesterday",
especially when there's other things which should be done yesterday.

I just hoping that they do not make same mistake(s) of the past of
pursuing the project without developing the user base, because it is
doomed to fail.
A Squeak and Pharo could provide such user base, as well as serve as a
source of developers and even improvements. I'd like to know if there
are understanding of this point.
