Fully agreed.

GNU Smalltalk supports the fileout syntax, we can use it.  Packages
and namespaces are not necessary features for this project (namespaces
are visible in a GUI, but building a good GUI framework like
OmniBrowser but for Hopscotch-like GUIs is what this project could be
about).  Security policies are not functional right now, they are
there only because they were part of my master thesis.

This has not been a problem for Seaside, which has much heavier
requirements on scaling.

Yeah, GNOME is just a desktop environment.  I'm sure that 99% of the
features would only need GTK+.
