> We are planning several things that may also help you going forward:  general serialization to JSON, and some playing around with OMeta for Smalltalk-on-LK experiments.  Jens and Robert are working on a road map for a bunch of projects at HPI this spring.

By "general serialization", are you talking about some kind of
mechanism for saving a snapshot of a running system? (I've seen the
"save current world" thing, but if I understand correctly that's just
saving the morphs, not all the objects in the image.)

Sorry to be impatient. :) I know you'll announce this stuff when
you're good and ready. I've just really been feeling the lack of a
snapshotting mechanism, so if you guys aren't doing it then I'll take
a crack at it myself. (If I understand correctly, it's not possible to
write Javascript code to get a proper snapshot of everything, since
local variables aren't accessible. But I could maybe hack together
something that would sorta work OK most of the time.)
