I admit that I've been feeling tempted to try the Smalltalk thing
myself. :) And the serialization thing sounds like it could be useful
too. How long do I need to wait before I can hear the details? :)

> It's great to have you playing around with LK and Self-like experiments.  I have wanted to revisit our Morphic from the standpoint of flexibility for deconstruction/reconstruction - something that Self under Randy and Dave did really well; we lost a bit ot that in Squeak and a bit more in Lively.

Can you give me an example of the kind of flexibility you mean? (It's
been a while since I played with Squeak.)
