What are my dreams:
1) Have a good set of libraries
2) Create scalable and portable applications in smalltalk (GST is the unique choice at the moment)
3) Have a decent and appealing scripting syntax -- no file-outs.

In what sense? You mean all that code for creating classes and methods should be reinvented for scripting?
Aren't file outs important for bringing out packages?
Class name: #Number extend: #Object [
    Method [

or something like that.  No "exclamation-mark separated" file-outs.


That would change the syntax... maybe something like this would be
reproducible in a smalltalk-like way:

Object subclass: #Foo
        instanceVariableNames: 'a'
        instanceMethods: {
#'initialize-release' -> {
                a := ''foo'''
#'accessing' -> {

Logically, using a string is not the best way to define a method (using
#compile:category: in this case) but can be a useful thing at the

Also, i see in Squeak that #new calls #initialize, i don't see this
behavior here, what about?

And the homepage? I can continue mine, hoping it'll be enough good to you
all :)
