Also, as an aside, what are people using to edit their GST code? I'm a
vim-head from way back but I really like the traditional Smalltalk
development environments -- although I think VisualWorks is far superior
to Squeak, I'm concerned about the fact that I can't even find a price
list for it!

Yes, VW is gratis for non-commercial use, but otherwise the licensing is a mess. Personally I use vi.

So I'm very tempted to put all the effort required into getting
VisualGST to compile under OS X. Does VisualGST do a good job of
preserving unchanged portions of a file? If I use svn, git or mercurial
to do version control, will the unchanged methods be identical between
subsequent commits?

After the first fileout, yes.

VisualGST should not be hard at all to compile under OS X if you install gtk+ from fink (which gives an X11 executable). It would be great if you tried with the native Quartz packages which install in /Library/Frameworks; in theory they are supported but I never tried.
