I agree, I have played with LK last week and this week quite a bit,
and it does look and behave amazing  (I am itching to say "especially
considering its rendered to the DOM" :) ). It dawned at me it is
closer to Squeak in concept (and now in functionality) then I realized
during the last few years trying it on/off  - each page is "almost" an
image (one bootstrap external js file imported at startup), you can
drill into objects and code although I still am missing some things
etc). JS is not really that big of an obstacle

minutes but this has almost everything one needs)
