Are you saying that I can can run my 64-bit Squeak.image running PTAPAS [1] on the Pharo headless VM?!?!?! Now that, my Ladies and Gentlemen, would constitute a profound shout-out to the Heritage [2]. Hey, goddammit, don’t you forget your Heritage!!! You gained a profound VM for Pharo [3]! Do you feel me?
