I'm going to port it and include it in Iliad-More-UI.
Thanks for this nice contribution :)

Just a few things: 
- you use some of the deprecated XHTML api (for instance #tableData).
The new api follows XHTML tags and attributes, so #tableData becomes
#td, #bold become #b, etc. It may seem strange first, but at the end it
is shorter, and you don't have to learn a new api, just write your html
code in smalltalk :)

I created an iliad-dev repository on squeaksource, it has public write
access, to feel free to add more stuff! I can't garantee that everything
will be accepted in Iliad though.

Nop. If you want you can port it to VW :D

There is SandstoneDb in the git version of gst, there is also ROE and
GLORP (the glorp version is a bit old, I would use ROE instead).
